Ten years before the start of the American Revolution, backcountry settlers in the North Carolina Piedmont launched their own defiant bid for economic independence and political liberty. The Regulator Rebellion of 1766-71 pitted thousands of farmers, many of them religious radicals inspired by the Great Awakening, against political and economic elites who opposed the Regulators' proposed reforms. The conflict culminated on May 16, 1771, when a colonial militia defeated more than 2,000 armed farmers in a pitched battle near Hillsborough. At least 6,000 Regulators and sympathizers were forced to swear their allegiance to the government as the victorious troops undertook a punitive march through Regulator settlements. Seven farmers were hanged. Using sources that include diaries, church minutes, legal papers, and the richly detailed accounts of the Regulators themselves, Marjoleine Kars delves deeply into the world and ideology of free rural colonists. She examines the rebellion's economic, religious, and political roots and explores its legacy in North Carolina and beyond. The compelling story of the Regulator Rebellion reveals just how sharply elite and popular notions of independence differed on the eve of the Revolution.… (mehr)

This is a decent piece of scholarship. It would likely only be interesting to those seeking to know more about colonial North Carolina history. She sets out to prove religion as the cause of the Regulator Rebellion, but fails. It turns out that corrupt politicians were to blame (hmmmmm!). ( )

This examination of class conflict in North Carolina just before the Revolutionary War is heavy on the social history and a little light on the examination of events. This is not to mention that though the social history of the South is not my best topic, I do have the sense that the author is reaching just a little bit in how she ultimately links the Regulators to the Populists of the late 19th century. While not a bad book, this is only a "must" read if you happen to have a paper on colonial America hanging over your head. It was just not as interesting as I thought it might be. ( )
