Discover Tryon Palace: Outlander- The Spark of the Rebellion
Saturday, April 16, 2022 – 9:15am to 10:00am
Join a group of time travelers in the first permanent capital of the colony in New Bern c. 1770s. Newly appointed Royal Governor Josiah Martin has taken his oath to King and Country amid whispers of discontent and unrest among the colonists. Travel in the literary footsteps of Colonel James Fraser, his wife Claire and their family as they journey through the events leading to Revolution. Meet with members of our local militia and other local citizens to learn more of the facts versus fiction as the Fraser family and friends review the aftermath of the Battle of Regulation and begin to determine – as do you – will they continue to stand for the King, or is it time to risk everything in the pursuit of Liberty?
