The following is from http://www.marchingthruhistory.com:
MTHE is open to all groups or individuals who have a desire and ability to educate the American public and to the visitors from around the world, on the history of civilizations both past and present.
MTHE is one of the largest time-line living history events west of the Mississippi River. MTHE has over one-thousand historical interpretive specialists representing many different aspects of world history from Ancient Rome, to Elizabethan England, to Colonial America and beyond. Our timeline starts with the beginning of the civilized world and marches its way through history to the current conflicts in the universal War on Terror.
MTHE is a family-oriented, educational atmosphere, celebrating the history of those who have defended their civilizations throughout history. Visitors are invited to walk through the camps of the participants and learn about the lives of the common man or woman or of the great names in history through interpretive specialists. There are reenactments that demonstrate the technology of the times, and each encampment is an opportunity to walk back into time and relive the rich history that is now only available in two-dimensions – through reading materials or the internet.
MTHE allows for all of your senses to become active while you march with your friends and families through the history of the civilized world. Come out and join us one and all… camping is available through Prado Regional Park for all scout, fraternal, school, or family groups who would wish to experience MTHE as a weekend event.
We go to great lengths to provide an environment that is conducive to the education of the American Citizenry and to offer the same citizenry the opportunity to reflect for an afternoon on those brave men and women of the our nation and their sacrifices to keep the United States of America the greatest experiment in the history of the world.

Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success.
When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it.
Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic,
be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
