Long Beach Middle School’s seventh-graders received an informative and interactive lesson about the American Revolutionary War and life in the 18th Century on Nov. 21, when the Huntington Militia brought history into the modern day. 

Colonial Day kicked off a unit on colonial times by providing a realistic portrayal of some of the events that occurred and practices that existed. Dressed to the theme, Patrick Mantel and Andy Taubers of the Huntington Militia presented reenactments that involved students and displayed artifacts such as a historic cannon. Long Beach Middle School teacher John Marr gave a lesson on colonial attire and the manual of arms.
