Birth of a Legion:

Not surprisingly, the 501st is largely internet based in terms of our organization and communication between garrisons and members throughout the world. It all began with Detention Block 2551. The 501st Legion began as a lark of sorts in South Carolina but grew into the over 6,000 strong organization it is today.

There’s just something about Star Wars that draws people in across so many different, races, religions, nationalities, and other backgrounds. We all share this love for Star Wars in the 501st Legion. But more importantly, we are united in our desire to be a part of something greater than ourselves.

Take a peek into our early days through the eyes of our founder Albin Johnson:
