Saturday, the German army seized control of the train depot and we witnessed a heated battle between the German and Allied armies.
Then, an unsuspecting train came through and a temporary cease fire was called.
It was a really long train, and some of the Germans came over to talk to the crowd.
As the end of the train neared, the troops began getting back into position.
Then the battle resumed.
The Allied Forces broke the German line and all German survivors surrendered.
This World War II reenactment has been taking place in Waxahachie for many years, but this was the first year we had heard about it. Not very well advertised I guess. The participants gather into camps Friday night and spend the weekend living history.
Along with the reenactment, there were vintage cars and motorcycles, like this one.
Earlier Saturday morning, there was a ceremony at the civic center honoring veterans. We went because a high school classmate was playing in a swing band during the ceremony.
