Picture re-enactors

The station PB450MOOK is a special event station, commemorating the Battle of Mookerheyde that took place 450 years ago on April 14th 1574 as part of the Eighty Years' War, or the 'Dutch Revolt'. This was an armed conflict in the Habsburg Netherlands between the Oranjes and the Spanish government. The battle was fought on the heath (Mook Heath, or Mookerheide in Dutch) near the village of Mook at the river Maas. In the 16th century, the Mookerheide extended over a larger area than today; south of Nijmegen to beyond Mook there was a large heath area that was called Mookerheide in its entirety.

There is still a chapel at the Mortel in Mook that is dedicated to Our Lady of the Will-o'-the-wisps. This chapel was built over two hundred years ago to provide a resting place for the souls of the fallen from the Battle of Mookerheyde, who wandered like lights over the Mookerheide.
