The New Plimmoth Gard, a 17th-century militia re-enactment group, will gather in the middle of Town Square on Feb. 17 and march to the Training Green on Sandwich Street to demonstrate Colonial-era military drills. The re-enactors will be using their pikes and firing muskets from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. to honor the anniversary of what they call “Establishment Day,” which was the day in 1621 that the Mayflower passengers called a meeting to organize and protect themselves, and chose Myles Standish to serve as their military captain.
