C/401 G.I.R. 101st AB DIV (Reenacted)

Welcome

We are a group of WWII reenactors from Wisconsin, Iowa, and Illinois dedicated to teaching the public about the 1/401st GIR of the 101st Airborne Division. As living historians, we study the men we portray through library research, veteran interviews, and to the extent possible, our experiences. We share and practice the results of this research to the public at living history and tactical reenactments throughout the year.
