The 501st was started by Albin Johnson, TK-210. For the full story, visit 501st.com.
In 2000, Scott and Rob Allen met up with Kevin "Darth Zippy" Zabawa of the Empire City Garrison. They learned that the ECG was about to join the 501st Legion, and that they could join as well. They started The New England Squad.
The New England Squad's first event was the Slanted Fedora convention in Framingham MA. The founding members of the group were: Scott Allen/TK-0413, Rob Allen/TS-0003, Jerry Buote/SL-0011, Joseph Medeiros/TB-0458, Stacey Alvares TA-1969, Kirk Angell/TI-0692, Matt Boucher/TB-0874 and Allysa Boucher, ID-0916.

Through the following years, the NEG has seen a variety of leaders come and go:
