While you can learn just about anything from a book, there is nothing like seeing history unfold before your very eyes.

On Saturday, Sept. 7, and Sunday, Sept. 8, the Lockport Township Park District stormed Dellwood Park with the sights and sounds of American military history during World War II Days. Along with battle reenactments, attendees also experienced big band music, artillery demonstrations and much more.
