Visitors to the Springfield Armory took a trip back in time on Sunday during the site’s unique Armory Day event. Local actors brought history to life as they portrayed gun inventors like John Garand.

“He looks at the gun as just another type of machine. When faced with the task of creating the M1 for the military, he looked at it in a very methodical way,” said Konrad Rogowski, portraying Garand.
