The New Plimmoth Gard is a group of historical reenactors portraying the culture and militia of Plymouth Colony circa 1621-1646. Their aim is to promote knowledge and understanding of early colonial society and the importance of military preparedness. They do this through historically accurate demonstrations of military and domestic arts of the early Plymouth Colony, for the education of the members and general public.
