 "Prior to the Revolution, Patrick Boggan was active in the Regulator movement of North Carolina and in 1768 petitioned Governor William Tryon, along with neighbors of like mind, for the replacement of local court officers. The town of Wadesboro, originally called “New Town,” was founded by act of the legislature in 1783.
