More > the Journal of the Expedition. All of these old and fragile books are housed in the N.C. State Archives (Raleigh), which pertain to the Regulation movement. These journals are NOT transcribed, but images of the originals are provided. These documents provide primary references to the State Militia. These are the men who fought against the Regulators, and supported the Governor during this revolt. The Regulators and the State militia will ultimately fight one another in 1771. Most (not all) of these men will become founding fathers of the American Revolution for North Carolina. This collection provides the reader PRIMARY documentation to this activity, and is a great source of locations, camps, and other activity before, during, and after the War of the Regulation on May 16, 1771.< Less
