We are happy to announce that the Wright Museum of WWII of Wolfeboro, NH will be once again joining us for our upcoming WWII Weekend in July! The Wright Museum will be showcasing their rarest vehicles at this year’s show, which we will be announcing in the coming months. One of which is featured below!

Please welcome the extremely rare M26 Pershing. This tank fought at the Battle of Remagen in March of 1945! It is the only known example of a M26 Pershing tank seeing combat during WWII and returning home after the war. The M26 Pershing was a Heavy Tank/Medium Tank of the United States Army. The tank was named after General of the Armies John J. Pershing, who led the American Expeditionary Force in Europe in World War I.
