The Alliance for Historic Hillsborough is paying tribute to the Regulator Movement, a group of farmers from the Carolinas who joined together in 1765 to rebel against the rising taxes enacted by Royal government officials.
The Regulator Movement culminated in the Battle of Alamance on May 16th, 1771, where they were defeated. On June 19th, 1771, six of the Regulators who were taken prisoners were hanged in Hillsborough.
The commemoration of the 250th year anniversary of the start of this important episode in North Carolina’s history will take place online on Thursday, September 24th, 2020.
