The Crossroads Museum will pay tribute to the American Soldier though time at a weekend event.

The nonprofit museum will host Veterans Timeline on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Corinth Depot.

The event is free.

Through encampments, antique military vehicle displays and living history demonstrations, the event will honor those that lived, fought and died during some of the most pivotal moments of American and world history, according to museum executive director Brandy Steen.

"This is a great event and we are so glad to be able to offer it free to the community," said Steen. "It's a wonderful way to pay tribute to those men and women who have fought and died for our freedom."

The event will host local father-son reenactors Dee and Devyn Cook with their World War II encampment and military vehicle display, reenactor Brock Thompson with his World War I tribute and Civil War reenactor David Stevens. Other reenactors from around the region are expected to make an appearance during the event.

The Veterans Timeline returns this year after a successful first year.

Steen said turnout was good in 2017 and hopes to build this into a yearly event.

This year, the event takes place one week prior to Veteran's Day on Sunday, Nov. 11.

For 38 years, the museum has served as Corinth's official city museum with a mission to preserve the past in an effort to inspire generations to come.

(The museum is located at 221 North Fillmore Street. For more information, contact 662-287-3120 or director@crossroadsmuseum.com.)
