Reenactors created quite a spectacle, as they created battle scenes at the Pioneer Florida Museum & Village during a living history event, in Dade City.
Donning military uniforms and carrying World War II-era weapons, soldiers simulated scenes from the Raid on Renault II.
Others offered living history lessons on such things as the French Resistance during the war, a German POW camp that was in Dade City, or vignettes from radio programs.
Besides watching the battle reenactment, those visiting also could get a close look at the weapons, ammunition and other artifacts from that era, and could grab a bite to eat.
Hundreds came to the two-day event, including some traveling great distances to either play an active role in the reenactments, or to watch them.
