I had no idea militias actually still existed In the USA. Especially ones with this extent of history. If I lived near Boston I would absolutely join this organization. I love the patriotism.

Who knew I'd see firearms, presidential signatures, history and a very cool horse saddle on the 4th floor of faniel hall. Quincy Market is a must go for any visitors, take the extra few minutes and go upstairs.
