Historic Soldiers Weekend At Fort Mifflin In Philadelphia, PA Held On September 25, 2010

Fort Mifflin's Historic Soldiers Weekend features encampments and displays representing all of the United States of America's Wars from the French Indian War to the Vietnam War. This was my second Historic Soldiers Weekend. I was extremely impressed with the program last year that I have made it a staple in my schedule of annual must-see events.

To the right of the entrance was an old jeep below the
Historic Soldiers Weekend sign. A nice introduction to the program:

Since The Philadelphia Airport is just an exit or two away, planes can be seen and heard quite frequently:
