Walnut Cove, NC-- Most of us have seen reenactors act out history for major events, especially wars and most of the actors are adults.
That was until tonight. CBS Evening News' Steve Hartman takes viewers "On the Road" to Walnut Cove, North Carolina, where he'll introduce you to the world's tiniest group of Civil War reenactors!
For three full school days every Spring, Eric Marshall, who is a history teacher, takes his 5th grade students out of the classroom and onto the battlefield. Marshall told Steve his goal is to make sure their lesson on the Civil War sticks.
Hartman will show you how Marshall leaves no detail out-from bad food to mock musket ball wounds.
Tonight, Friday, April 5 on CBS Evening News at 6:30pm on WFMY.
