Students from Babylon Memorial Grade School had their social studies lesson plan "come to life" on May 10, as Civil War actors from Old Bethpage Village Restoration paid a visit to the school to provide students with an inside glimpse into the life of a soldier in the 1860s.

The actors came decked out in costumes similar to what Union and Confederate soldiers wore during the Civil War, and the students had the opportunity to view antique rifles, muskets and other artifacts from the era.
