Welcome to the Gallery

of the

2013 American Heritage Festival

"A patriotic and educational living history celebration featuring diverse facets of our American Heritage including both civilian and military aspects as well as historic allies and enemies ranging from the Colonial era through the late 20th century."

Proudly Presented in Queen Creek, Arizona each November by

We Make History


















2013 was once again "mission accomplished" for the AHF as exciting, creative and innovative historic education was presented to thousands of students, families and visitors from around Arizona, The Southwest and the entire USA. Our desire is to inspire!

Our types of portrayals and time periods represented have grown in diversity with our encampment featuring time periods from the 1600s - 1900s and everything from historic military to historic music to historic trades to historic domestic life to numerous first-person portrayals of historic personas.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our 12th annual American Heritage Festival to be held in Queen Creek, AZ from November 21st-23rd, 2014.

Special thanks go to the following photographers for their significant contributions in augmenting my own stock. Between us, the number of photos compiled numbered in the thousands with many good ones to choose from, edit, re-size and even to use as inspiration for works of art in creating this Gallery. I believe you will discover not only a selection of the best of the photos but also a wide representation of the diverse people and happenings that made up the 2013 American Heritage Festival. GW

Thanks to

Mrs. H., Mr. Stark, Mr. & Mrs. Davis, Mr. Triplett, Ms. McFarlane
