Discovering Tryon Palace: The Spark of the Rebellion
September 19, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
An event every month that begins at 9:00 am on day Third of the month, repeating until November 21, 2020
As Royal Governor Tryon, his family and servants settled into the new completed government house in New Bern, North Carolina in June 1770, there were whispers of rebellion in the colony. Discover the facts versus the fictions of the North Carolina Regulator Movement.
Jamie and Claire Fraser’s version of the events which occurred in this colony during 1770 – 1771 have been presented. Tryon Palace invites you to hear the Crown’s side of the story. The royal perspective of the actions of the Citizens of North Carolina and the Thirteen Colonies taken from Governor William Tryon’s own words. Did all in government agree with Governor Tryon’s actions? Were there others treading carefully between lines of the Royal Governor and the Regulators, as James Fraser did? More importantly, should it come to choosing sides, are you a Loyalist, or will you choose to redefine what it means to be a Patriot in America?

Cooking meals and holidays at the Palace
Medical treatments of the times and common illnesses and cures.
