About Old Line Garrison:

Our Mission

*To Promote Interest in Star Wars*
While a growing number of people are experiencing a reawakening of their *Star
Wars* fandom, new generations are seeking ways to celebrate their passion
for George Lucas's modern mythology. The 501st Legion brings these fans
together, reinforcing the enduring longevity of the* Star Wars* saga.

*To Facilitate the Use of Costumes*
Some fans are content to collect action figures...other fans want to
*be*action figures. Nothing professes your passion quite like building
your own
detailed costume replica of a classic *Star Wars* villain, and there's
nothing quite like the feeling that comes from bringing the characters of *Star
Wars* into the real world and sharing the magic with others.

*To Contribute*
While our organization was founded to simply provide a collective identity
for costuming fans with similar interests, the 501st is proud to put its
resources to good use through fundraising, charity work, and volunteerism.

If you would like to inquire about 501st appearances, please use our event

have established our own presence in the world. The local chapter of the
