On March 7th, the Continental Congress approved the three NC Light Dragoons companies to be placed on the NC Continental Line.

On April 7th, the North Carolina General Assembly convened in New Bern for its first session. In April, they authorized one more regiment of NC Continental troops, but it takes Governor Richard Caswell two months to convince the Continental Congress to agree. It takes much longer for the new 10th NC Regiment to be fielded.

On April 10th, the two special regiments of Militia were disbanded since the anticipated British invasion never materialized. They were sent home.

On April 15th, Brigadier General James Moore of the NC Continental Line died. Brigadier General Robert Howe was now the commander of the Southern Department of the Continental Army and head-quartered in Charlestown, SC. The rest of the NC Continental Line was ordered to march northward and to join General George Washington in the Northern Department.

Brigadier General Francis Nash was now in command of all NC Continentals. However, the 9th NC Regiment and the 10th NC Regiment were still not fully staffed and they remained at home attempting to finalize their recruitment.
