Fall of Bataan (1942)- Summer of 2009?! There's rumors of a possible Fall of Bataan (or defense of the Abucay-Mauban Line) An event to be held in central Virginia, if it becomes a reality we'll keep you posted!
by the 43rd Division 118th Infantry Imperial Japanese Army reenactment group
About Us: The 43rd Division is a very informal group of reenactors located all up and down the eastern seaboard, ranging from the New England states to as far south as North Carolina and every state in between. We primarily gather as a group annually for the "Battle for Saipan" reenactment held on a private farm near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania (traditionally the event is held in July).
Wow they look good. A big group of Japanese reenactors lends a lot of possibilities for photo shoots and movie making.
I'm guessing the part of the Abucay defense that could be reenacted would be the sparring between the Philippine Division and the Japanese. Historically that would be the engagement with a lot of American troops involved with the 31st Infantry committed into a counter attack to restore the Abucay line.
