240th Anniversary, Battle of Alamance

I received a report from the field today from my friends who are attending the 240th Battle of Alamance event this weekend. I certainly wish I could be there with them, as it sounds like they are having a good time. The big festivities this we included the unveiling of new exhibits at the site and the release of a new book by Elon University professor Carole Troxler entitled Farming Dissenters: The Regulator Movement in Piedmont North Carolina. I'll post more about this event later, and I can't wait to get a copy of the new book, which one of the gang will be bringing back from the event for me.
