HUDSON – The Collings Foundation and the American Heritage Museum will host their Battle for the Airfield World War II reenactment on four occasions between Saturday, Oct. 9 and Sunday, Oct. 10. 

The weekend will also include a World War II Veterans roundtable discussion. 

“Will the Allied troops be able to gain control of the airfield? Can they further their advancement? Battle for the Airfield is a WWII living history event you will never forget,” a press release announcing the event asked.

The American Heritage Museum is located at 568 Main Street in Hudson. Admission costs $35 for adults and $30 for seniors and veterans. Children under 12 can get into the event for $20. Discount rates are available through online ticket purchase at  www.AmericanHeritageMuseum.org.
