Join Tryon Palace for 2 special Outlander Tours!

The Spark of Rebellion (9:15 am-10:15 am): we walk in the literary footsteps of Colonel James Fraser, his wife Claire, and their family as they journey through the events leading to Revolution. Through interactions with historic interpreters in the local militia, a local physick, and palace servants, you will learn that recently appointed Royal Governor Josiah Martin has taken his oath to King and Country amid whispers of discontent and unrest among the colonists. Join us to learn more of the facts versus fiction as the Fraser family and their friends review the aftermath of the Battle of Regulation and begin to determine – as do you – are we to stand for the King, or is it time to risk everything in the pursuit of Liberty?

Storm of Revolution (4:15 pm - 5:15pm): The forces for independence have been unleashed and Governor Josiah Martin has ordered Claire Fraser to assist him as he plots to stop the Revolutionaries. Colonel James Fraser has joined local forces marching to the capital. The time to choose has arrived – will you swear your Loyalty to the King, or enlist with others seeking Liberty?
