North Carolina History Project : Sandy Creek Baptists (1135 words)
Following the Regulator Movement in North Carolina (1766-1771), Sandy Creek Baptists played a key role in the tremendous growth of the Baptist denomination in the South, and their political beliefs influenced the changing views regarding the common man in America throughout the late eighteenth century.
For instance, the Sandy Creek Regulators of Orange and Regulators of Anson, Rowan, Granville and Mecklenburg counties petitioned Governor William Tryon and the North Carolina Assembly in March 1768 and condemned the Eastern gentry for dominating the legislature and condoning courthouse rings in which local sheriffs and other officials dominated.
The exodus from the Piedmont contributed to Baptist growth in western North Carolina, Tennessee, and South Carolina.
