Alamance Battleground State Historic Site and Allen House [NC]

On this site in 1771, an armed rebellion of backcountry farmers—called Regulators—battled against royal governor William Tryon's militia. Visitors can tour the 18th-century Allen House and battlefield monuments. These features, together with the visitor center's new DVD orientation program, offer a vivid account of this colonial battle, as well as the oppressive British colonial policies that sparked the revolt.

The site offers a short film, exhibits, tours, and occasional recreational and educational events (including living history events).
