WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Military re-enactors are coming together this weekend for Jamestown Settlement's annual "Military Through the Ages" event.

The event taking place Saturday and Sunday features hundreds of re-enactors depicting armed forces from the first century A.D. to modern times.

It will feature more than 30 groups from Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and North Carolina demonstrating military drills, uniforms and period cooking.

Officials say the event also will mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the bicentennial of the War of 1812, and the anniversary of the 1862 Battle of Williamsburg.
