Hello Scott,

I have passed your question on to those in charge of the site. I do want to let you know that some of the articles come from published sources and you will likely need to get pemission from the publisher. Hopefully, you will hear from NCpedia staff soon.

who was the first person to die


no mean comments


I am trying to find an official record on the deaths that occurred at the Battle of Lindley's Mill in 1781/82. The person I am trying to locate is Major John Nalle who died trying to free the Governor of North Carolina.

Could you provide an article expanding upon the reasons some Highlanders choose to side with the Loyalists and others chose to side with the Patriots? I suspect that fear of a repeat of reprisals similar to that experienced after Coloden was one factor for the ones choosing Loyalist. However, I suspect there was a lot of peer pressure on the Patriot side as well.
