My article, “A REASSESSMENT OF THE MARTYRDOM OF REGULATOR JAMES FEW” has been posted today to the Journal of the American Revolution. I hope you enjoy reading this article.
Synopsis: James Few was the first leader of the North Carolina Regulators hanged following the Battle of Alamance. His hanging was summary and came without benefit of trial. Early North Carolina historians have depicted James Few as a pathetic figure of limited mental competence, and only give passing notice to the impressive role his family played in the coming American Revolution, including a brother who signed the United States Constitution.
