On December 21st, the North Carolina Provincial Council authorized a split of the Salisbury District Minutemen into two separate and distinct regiments, one led by Col. Griffith Rutherford and one led by Col. Thomas Polk. Col. Matthew Locke took over the 1st Rowan County Regiment of Militia, replacing Col. Griffith Rutherford. It is currently unknown who took over the Mecklenburg County Regiment of Militia at this point in time. It is entirely possible that Col. Thomas Polk retained leadership over both regiments.

On December 22nd, the North Carolina Provincial Council authorized the creation of a second regiment of Militia within Pasquotank County, with Col. Isaac Gregory as its leader. There are now 43 regiments (aka battalions) of Minutemen/Militia across the province.
