VIDEO: Fourth Graders Relive American Revolution

Bedford Road School's annual Revolutionary Tradition carries on in Pleasantville.

Pleasantville fourth graders took advantage of a warm, sunny Friday to carry on an annual tradition.

Students, teachers and parent volunteers filled  after marching down from  for a morning of tent-pitching, cider-making and musket-shooting.

Fourth grade teacher Eileen Eustace said the program was born several years ago when a few teachers took a course in Ticonderoga where "we learned to live like Continental soldiers."

"When we came back, collaboratively working with the fourth grade teachers, we came up with this idea," she explained.

The day's props—including tent materials, drums, flags and uniforms—have been purchased using grant money.

"The children love it and it's one of their most favorite memories of fourth grade," Eustace said.
