Conneaut is going back in time this weekend, to D-Day, when the Allied forces took the beaches of Normandy, France, to fight the Nazi army.
Most people would refer to this as a reenactment, but the people involved prefer to call it a "living history".
They're doing more than acting, they're educating people about WWII, and the era.
More than 1000 "living historians" are traveling from all over the country to recreate one of our country's greatest pieces of military history.
69 years ago, more than 100,000 troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, fighting the German Nazi forces.
This weekend 20,000 people are expected to descend on the beaches of Conneaut, Ohio, to relive the spectacular military victory.
The historians will embody the selfless sacrifice and courage displayed on June 6, 1944, aided by authentic world war two planes and watercraft, like Higgins boats.
This is the largest D-Day living history display in the country.
It's a perfect opportunity for parents and grandparents to pay homage and teach the next generation about the greatest generation.
"What we're doing is important in telling the history and the story and keeping what these guys did alive," said Wayne Heim, who's handling public relations for D-Day Conneaut. "Not just the guys, but everyone involved. It was a colossal event that took place."
The event runs all day Friday and Saturday at Conneaut Township Park, about an hour drive from Erie. It's free to attend.
