An American Family History


The Regulators


The Regulators were a large group of North Carolina colonists who opposed the taxation and fee system imposed by colonial officials in the late 1760s. This ended in the Battle of Alamance between the colonial militia and the Regulators in May, 1771. Following this battle, a few Regulators were hanged, but the majority were pardoned.

The Sandy Creek Baptist Church members in Liberty, Randolph County, North Carolina participated in the movement. After the battle, Governor William Tryon and his troops burned crops, confiscated food, and burned homes in the Sandy Creek settlement.

Sandy Creek Baptist Church dropped from 606 members to 14 within a year of the battle. The majority of the Sandy Creek refugees moved to Washington County, Tennessee, where they established Buffalo Ridge Baptist Church.
