Regulators UNC Libraries

Beginning in the late 1760s, a group of Piedmont NC farmers calling themselves the Regulators organized against increased taxation and other injustices from colonial officials. These protests would lead to a violent clash at the Battle of Alamance in May 1771. Learn more about the Regulator movement and how it connects to the story of American democracy.

Curator of Community History Glenn Perkins talks with Elon University Professor Emerita and author Carole Watterson Troxler and Jeremiah DeGennaro, Site Manager at Alamance Battleground State Historic Site in Burlington.
