During the American Revolution, John Llewelyn led a group of loyalists against the North Carolina state government, both spiritually and militarily. This Tory group opposed a series of laws passed by the North Carolina congress and fought to dis-establish the Anglican Church, against the oath of allegiance to the new state government and the military draft. Several members were caught and tried but most were released.
