In honor of local veterans of World War II, New Oxford, Pennsylvania will stage a reenactment of the liberation of a Dutch village by an Allied convoy. The Liberation is part of a multi-event historical program, starting Friday evening September 14th designed to remember the sacrifices and celebrate the effort that the nation and its Allies put forth-- on the battlefront and on the homefront-- to stop the spread of totalitarian facism throughout the world and liberate the people under its occupation.
