From its earliest charter in 1663, North Carolina was expected to maintain militias for its own defense against hostile invasion, pirates, rebellion, or war with Native Americans. Join us to learn about how militias were organized, how they were called up and outfitted, and how they functioned in the period between 1663 and 1763.
