Plymouth: Historic Document Looks At Wounded Veterans’ Care

The Plymouth County Registry of Deeds will display a historic record on display this Friday, May 31st in honor of Memorial Day.

It’s a declaration by the courts of 1636, is one of the first documents to state that “any man that shall be sent forth as a solider and returned ‘maimed’ will be maintained competently by the colony for his whole life …”

 

That was the Register of Deeds, John Buckley. Buckley says they select various records to be brought out monthly from their climate controlled vaults, so the public can view them.

 

The document will be on display Friday, May, 31st from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Plymouth County Registry of Deeds (second floor), 50 Obery St. in Plymouth.
