JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The American military tribute that lasts for three days began Wednesday.

According to the event’s website, The Trail of Honor is dedicated to the education of people about the American Military and the history of conflicts our military has faced.

The website says the Trail of Honor began in 2003 as a way to welcome the Run for the Wall riders and to honor veterans. It began as a pit stop on the Run for the Wall with a single Civil War cannon and has since evolved into a 3-day event by more than 300 living historians and volunteers.

In 2015, this event attracted more than 35,000 visitors.

Each May, the Jackson Mississippi Harley Davidson dealership is closed to normal business and transforms to host the Trail Of Honor a living history demonstration event.
