Visitors of the Vicksburg Military Park witnessed historic military re-enactments Sunday.
Several spectators GOT a glimpse of military life from the American Revolution through present day.
This is something they do every year to pay tribute to the brave men and women who lost their lives for our country's freedom.
We caught up with the park guide who talked about the annual event.
"Veteran's Day is about the veterans that are still alive...and Memorial Day is about those who not around... when you go to the cemetery half way through the park, there's 18-thousand buried there from a variety of wars... not just the civil war. We got a soldier from the Mexican American war, people from the Spanish American War, World War I, World War 2, Korea, all of those people are there," said park guide, Jake Koch.
Officials also say it's important to kids learn about military history to understand and appreciate the freedoms they enjoy.
