History comes alive aboard the USS ALABAMA with the ship's Living History Crew. These historical reenactors portray life aboard ship during WWII. They wear some of the ship's original gear, conduct drills, and even swab the deck. They reenact "call to battle stations" and fight enemy airplanes during the YAK attack using the restored 20mm and 40mm guns mounted on the deck. 40s-style musical entertainment will be showcased. Enjoy a vintage military vehicle show on the grounds. Deep South Amateur Radio Club will broadcast live from the ship.
