An armory is a repository for firearms, cannon and other implements of destruction as well as a drill area for troops or militia. The creation of an armory was a near necessity for burgeoning colonies, as there was a constant need for firearms to defend against the attacks of wildlife or angered natives. And while invaluable to the survival of a nascent settlement, armories were usually sequestered away from the rest of a colony, in case a rough match or spark should drift in through their doors and cause the powder to catch, a lesson that more than a few young colonies were forced to learn the hard way.
- The Armory is based on the powder magazine in Williamsburg, Virginia.
