The First Shots of the Revolutionary War #northcarolinapioneers #ncgenealogy

The Battle of Alamance

William TryonDid you know that the Battle of Alamance fought on May 16, 1771 shed the first blood of the struggle for American Independence? It is said that the shots fired at Lexington were "heard around the world." but let it not be forgotten that almost four years before the day of Lexington, shots were fired at Alamance, and that Lexington continued the fight. William Tryon, the Royal Governor of North Carolina, was referred to as the "wolf" because he oppressed the people of his province to the point where they were obliged to do one or two things, viz: resist him or become slaves. A group of patriots resolved to resist and formed themselves into an organization known as "Regulators." 2,000 to 3,000 arose partly armed and met the forces of the royal Governor at Alamance. "Lay down your guns or I will fire!" shouted the British commander. "Fire and be damned!" shouted back the leader of the Regulators. However, the Regulators were defeated and dispersed.

Eagle Tavern in Hertford, NC #northcarolinapioneers #ncgenealogy


Eagle Tavern

Eagle TavernThere is a story that George Washington came to Hertford on business connected with lands in the Dismal Swamp and may have tarried at the old tavern. It was during a journey through the South in 1791. However, a room was shown as having been his. Diagonally across the street from the Eagle Tavern at the end of the yard enclosing the old Harvey home, there are two great-size stones which are said to mark the grave of a mighty Indian chief. This may have been Chief Kilcokonen, a friend of one of the earliest settlers, George Durant. The town of Hertford saw gunboats coming down the river from the Northern Army, and one brief battle was fought inside the town. One man was killed on each side. The old residents used to boast of how the women, while a skirmish occurred, came out of their homes and cheered on the soldiers. It is said that while this skirmish was taking place that a ball from one of the gunboats on the river went through one of the houses and tore a covering from the bed on which the mistress of the house had just been lying.
