Monday, February 17, 2020 - 10:00am to 2:00pm

Colorfully costumed re-enactors of the New Plimmoth Gard brandish pikes, swords and muskets to commemorate the 399th anniversary of the establishment of Plymouth’s first colonial militia.

This is an observance of the initial organization of a town guard to protect the new colony and the first election of an officer to serve the community.  New Plimmoth Gard will set-up displays and tell the story of initial establishment of the colony and read the Militia Orders.  Weather permitting there will be a demonstration with musket and pike drills outside.
