The Event will be a "Generic Battle" representation of the last push by the Allied forces in western Europe to the Rhine river. The Allies have just defeated the German Offensive in the Ardennes, The Germans have fallen back onto German soil.  This was the start of battles on the German homeland, and the start of the battle for the end of the Reich.  Event will take place on February 19-21, 2010.  More information can be found at the website below.

No. The property being used for this event has not been used before. It is larger, and has future expansion available. It has some paths can be used by vehicles too. It is near Roanoke Rapids, NC, and is only 6 miles from I-95.

We have done some more updating, and are taking registrations. Reenactors get in for $15 if they sign up by January 21, 2010. It is $20 at the gate. Vehicle owners get in free, if they bring their vehicle of course. Hope to see y'all there!

We've done some work at the event site, put in bunkers, foxholes, and it is coming together and shaping up to be a great event. Hope to see everyone there!

Weather is looking great! The battlefield is ready, and all that awaits is to see if the americans have guts to step onto "german" soil.  ;D Seriously, the event is only a couple days away, and it's going to be fun.

Rhineland Battle was a great success thanks to all who attended. We will be making this an annual event, the same weekend time frame. It was great to see y'all there, and we are planning future improvements to the battlefield. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks again to Dudley and Gowen for leading the two forces. Loved having the halftrack! We have posted some pictures on the website, and plan to have this event again next year, so check the website when the new year swings around. We are also planning an event reenacting the airdrops of the Normandy invasion coming up on May 1, so check it out too!
