Establishment Day- a New Plimmoth Gard reenactment February 18, 2013 12:30pm

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.
