I have done a few presentations at the museum in full WWI French uniform about the uniform, equipments and weaponry they used during the war.
There will be quite a few reenactors getting together there for Memorial Day weekend representing French, British, American, Russian, Italian, German and Austro-Hungarian forces.

My family has been there but I was out of town at the time. Pretty bad I live in Kansas City and haven't been there yet.:p
Guess it's just too close so I keep thinking 'next weekend'

I go to a gun show in Kansas City and visited the museum once while there. If you are there, do not pass it by.

Red pants, or Horizon Blue variety?

Thinking of red pants, have you read John W. Thomason, Jr.'s wonderful story RED PANTS? If not - find it and read it.
