On May 16, 1771, the Regulators met the forces of Royal Governor William Tryon in the Battle of Alamance, climaxing an expedition by Tryon to suppress the uprising known as the War of Regulation. The site of the battle has been designated a state historical site, and many relics from the battlefield are displayed in the museum. In May of this year, there will be a week of events sponsored by the Alamance County Historical Association to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle.
