Regulator Rembrance Day Event-CANCELLED

June 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The annual Regulator Remembrance Day Event will occur on Monday, June 19th at 6:00 PM at the Regulator Historic Site, in Cameron Park, 200 East King Street, Hillsborough, NC 27278.

This year’s event marks the date 246 years ago, June 19, 1771 when six early American patriots were executed by English colonial Governor William Tryon for daring to defy English colonial authority as part of the Regulator Rebellion. In 1771, there was no “Bill of Rights” to protect these brave martyrs to Liberty’s cause.

For the 246th Regulator Remembrance Event, there will be an introduction of special guests, historical remarks, reading of the names, and a tolling of the bell, followed by a chance for the public to bring and lay flowers at the Regulator Historic Site.

This marks the fifth year that this Regulator Remembrance Event has taken place in Hillsborough. Representatives of the Alamance Battleground State Historic Site, Orange County Historical Museum, Hillsborough Mayor Tom Stevens, descendants of the original Regulators, and others are expected to be present at this popular event, too.

The event is free and open to the public. People are invited to bring flowers and lay them at the marker site as well during this event.
