The Tennessee State Park System is honoring the 100th anniversary of World War I with a living history event in Nashville all weekend.

Re-enactors will give spectators a view into what life was life overseas as Americans fought in the Great War.

Thousands of Tennessee troops were sent overseas including the "Ebony Doughboys" a troop of African-American soldiers.

There are mock-ups of trenches, field kitchens and World War One-era planes at Bicentennial Mall.  The event runs through Sunday where it will conclude with a Vintage Baseball game.
