In 1320 something occurred that had a profound effect on the course of history. Do you know what it was and where the stunning event happened?
Come with me back to the misty shores of time in 1320 and the land of the Scots. Read in their own words from 1320 how they felt in the Declaration of Arbroath. “… for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom … for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.” 6 April 1320
This was the first known attempt of people to have rights. It was a model years later to another group who rebelled from British rule. That group of unruly colonies wrote the “Declaration of Independence.” Almost half of the signers of this resolution came from Scotland. The colonies won their freedom and became the United States of America. Nine out of the original states had governors of Scottish ancestry. Thirty-three out of 43 U.S. presidents can trace part of their ancestry to Scotland.
