Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Civil War ended 150 years ago and it's also the 75th anniversary of World War 2. One local museum is commemorating the history of the wars with a film festival.

The Bundy Museum in Binghamton announced the details of "In the Zone with Rod Serling" earlier today.

Serling served in World War II, and of his more than 250 scripts written, 52 of them were about war.

"Even in high school at Binghamton High School the year before he graduated, he was editor of the panorama news paper, and he in every issue was trying to get the students to join the war effort in one way or another," said Michael Pipher, the curator of the Rod Serling archive.

Four of Sterling's war films will be shown at the festival on April 30 at 6:30 p.m.

Some of the films are Twilight Zone episodes about the Civil War, World War II and Vietnam.
