North Carolina: A Colony Divided
North Carolina, A Colony Divided:
Patriots vs. Loyalists
Join the Mecklenburg Chapter for our September Dinner Meeting as we welcome historical researcher and storyteller John Braswell from High Point, NC.
John brings his presentation of “North Carolina, A Colony Divided: Patriots vs. Loyalists.”
John Adams wrote that approximately one-third of the American population supported the move for independence (Patriots), one third of the population supported the king (Loyalists), and one-third supported neither side (neutral).
Two major Loyalist battles fought in the
Carolinas were Moore’s Creek Bridge and Kings Mountain.
Come hear the stories about how North Carolina families struggled against each other and how the Patriots changed the tide of the Revolutionary War in North Carolina.
John is a graduate of Wake Forest University. He has also completed three years of graduate study at UNC-CH.
John is known for his love of American history. Three of his historical presentations have received awards by civic and patriotic organizations.
