Diversity, Religion, and the North Carolina Regulators

Record #:
This article looks at religious life in the North Carolina interior and suggests how religion influenced the North Carolina Regulator Movement, a loosely organized protest movement of settlers in the North Carolina backcountry during the 1760s and early 1770s that began as a peaceful expression of the settlers' discontent over political and economic conditions and developed into a series of increasingly violent mob actions that ended with a pitched battle between the Regulators and militia led by the colonial governor.
