Huzzah! The Ancients and Honorables elect a new leader

On the first Monday of every June, the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company elects a new leader, then marches from the Old State House to lay a wreath at the grave of their first captain, Robery Keayne. And that's what there were a bunch of guys in uniforms marching around downtown today.

They were the original inspiration for the various Horribles parades, so they get credit for adding to the fun on the 4th of July.
