  • 3. Governors of North Carolina by Sadler, W. J.

    Abstract:
    William Tryon was a professional soldier and governor of the North Carolina colony on the eve of the American Revolution. Almost immediately following his arrival, he had to deal with resistance to the Stamp Act, which was finally repealed to head off bloodshed. Later, citizens, known as Regulators, banded together in armed resistance to excessive taxation. Tryon led the troops that put them down in 1771. After six years of strife and turmoil, the King named him Governor of New York. Although citizens were glad to see him go, Tryon's lasting monument in the state was the magnificent Palace in New Bern, which served as a state house as well as a home for governors.
