MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Cannons, trucks, jeeps, uniforms, and even a wall will be showcased this weekend during the Mid-South Military History and Civil War Show.
The Vietnam Traveling Tribute 'The Wall' will be a feature at the 2016 show at the Agricenter Show Place Arena from March 4-6.
"The Wall" will be available to the public 24 hours a day and will be free of charge. The 360 foot long American Veteran's Traveling Tribute contains the names of 58,272 men and women who died protecting our freedom in Vietnam.
Additionally; several cannons, trucks and jeeps from World War II will be on display to honor the Greatest Generation.
These 74-year-old combat vehicles will represent some of the weapons and equipment of WWII, such as the 701st Tank Destroyer Unit.
Approximately 200 vendors are expected, with visitors planned from more than 15 states.
Attendees are educated with the many large exhibits where collectors describe items and answers questions. Items range from uniforms, rifles, pistols, swords, books, documents, stamps, collector prints, antique bottles, and other antique military items.
In addition, there will be teaching and educational experiences for our school children and the community. Reenactors will be camping outside the arena doing demonstrations, and cannons will be fired into the air every hour.
Admission to "The Wall" is free.
Admission to the show is $10 per person. Children 12 and under are free to the show. All veterans have free admission with military ID. Police, fire, and scouts in uniform are also free to shows.
