The Loyal Patriots of North Carolina

Did you know that North Carolina was one of the first colonies to instruct its delegates to vote for independence? Many of its colonists resented the levy of taxes by the British without representation in Parliament. The early steps taken was for the legislature to issue the Halifax Resolves which authorized the delegates to the Second Continental Congress to vote for independence. The loyal citizens managed to suppress the Loyalist elements in the colony until late in the war.
