Seventy years ago in December 1944, the fate of Europe hung in the balance as Allied forces fought Germany in the Battle of the Bulge, while Russian forces struck against Germany in the east. Spring Mountain Ranch State Park offers visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in this time in history on December 13. See what the soldiers who fought in these epic battles looked like, what they carried with them and a few of the vehicles that transported them to and from the battlefield. This is the park’s first WWII Living History day and will feature US, German and Russian army re-enactors. Visit their camps and speak to a nurse about the experiences of caring for wounded soldiers.
