AND local Cable PACTV news story
On February 17 1621, the surviving Mayflower settlers met and “On Saturday the 17th day in the morning we called a meeting for the establishing of Military Orders amongst ourselves, and we chose Miles Standish our Captain, and we gave him authority to command in affaires.” – from Mourts’ Relation 1622.
The New Plimmoth Gard will re-enact this event for the first time in 392 years, it is also the first anniversary of our group. We will perform this reenactment at 12:30 pm on Monday February 18, 2013. The event will start at Town Square at the top of Leyden St, in Plymouth Ma.
The New Plimmoth Gard is a group of historical reenactors portraying the citizen soldiers of Plymouth Colony circa 1640. Our aim is to promote knowledge and understanding of early colonial society, and the importance of military preparedness to this culture. We do this through historically accurate demonstrations of military practices using the weapons, armor and clothing of the period.
We are a new group formed in early 2012. We are looking to expand our membership. Interested adults are welcome. We meet in Plymouth, Massachusetts. We are looking forward to the 400th anniversary of the founding of America’s Home Town. We have men and women as members.
A BIG THANKS TO NEW PLIMMOTH GARD
Dear Steve and company:
Together with the 2012 AHTC Committee, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your participation in the Historic Village.
Fellow reenactors were astounded when we mentioned that the AHTC was your first “official” event – all of your hard work was clearly evident!
We are deeply grateful for all of your work – to lug in gear, set up your camp and display, entertain and inform the public and then break it all down and pack it up – your presence made the AHTC Historic Village truly come alive.
Thank you, thank you for participating in the 2012 AHTC event.
Happy Thanksgiving ! Most sincerely
Parade Unit Coordinator
