Sunday History Hike: The Regulator Rebellion

  • Hillsborough Visitors Center 150 East King Street Hillsborough, NC, 27278 United States (map)

In the 1760s, farmers in backcountry North Carolina started an uprising against colonial officials. After several failed attempts to resolve their issues peacefully, the farmers - known as Regulators - proceeded to extralegal and violent forms of dissent.

Hillsborough played a critical role in the Regulator crisis of 1770-71, as the setting for both the movement's escalation and its final demise. Join Alamance Battleground Site Manager Jeremiah DeGennaro for a walking tour through Historic Hillsborough, to various sites related to the Hillsborough Riot of 1770 and the Regulator Hangings of 1771
