The 4th Infantry Division in WWII experienced some of the most brutal combat in the advance across Europe. Chosen as one of the primary spearhead divisions in Operation Overlord, the men of the Fourth waded ashore at Utah Beach on June 6, 1944. Seventy years later, we aspire to keep their stories alive and well.
Welcome to the website of the Furious Fourth, a WWII living history organization dedicated to interpreting the lives and struggles of the average foot soldier of the 4th Infantry Division. Based out of Central Pennsylvania, we participate in a number of events throughout the mid-Atlantic every year. These activities includes living history encampments, school talks, formal lectures, film and documentary productions, and reenactments large and small. Striving for authenticity, we focus on more than weapons and equipment. Rather, we try to contextualize individual stories within the broader saga of WWII. We invite you to join us in the field!
Guarding the Horseshoe Curve WWII Encampment - In August 2014, the Furious Fourth organized the first ever living history event at the famous Horseshoe Curve National Historic Landmark. Portraying railroad guards preventing Nazi sabotage, the unit greeted hundreds of enthusiastic visitors over that weekend.
