On Saturday, May 18th, members of the 501st Legion – New England Garrison and the Rebel Legion – Alderaan Base attended ‘Star Wars Day’ at the Higgins Armory Museum. The Emperor and his apprentice Darth Vader were accompanied by their Imperial forces alongside a team of Jedi led by General Obi-Wan Kenobi. The NEG also participated in a pair of “dressing panels” where a Samurai and Darth Vader’s armor were compared side-by-side. Later on in the day a similar panel was held comparing a Gothic Knight and an Imperial Stormtrooper. The NEG was saddened by the news that the museum would be closing it’s doors later this year and wanted to make out last event at Higgins the best one ever! It’s not too late to stop by and check out the incredible collection of medival-era artifacts. To learn more about the museum check out their website. http://www.higgins.org/
