Hillsborough Regulators Walking Tour

September 10, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

“…the melancholy account of a violent insurrection, or rather rebellion having broke out in Orange County…”
– Virginia Gazette, Oct. 25 1770

Hillsborough played a critical role in the Regulator crisis of 1770-71, as the setting for both the movement’s escalation and its final demise. Join Alamance Battleground Site Manager Jeremiah DeGennaro for a walking tour through Historic Hillsborough, to various sites related to the Hillsborough Riot of 1770 and the Regulator Hangings of 1771. $5 donation requested. All proceeds will go to Alamance Battleground State Historic Site.

**Call Hillsborough Visitors Center to RSVP** (919)732-7741

Meet at the Hillsborough Visitor Center, 150 E. King Street.

This program is part of the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough’s Piedmont Living History Day. https://www.facebook.com/events/1880330148861062/
