Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th July!

But did you know that nine governors of the original 13 American states were Scots?

Senate Resolution 155, passed on 20 March 1998, referred to the predominance of Scots among the Founding Fathers and claimed that the American Declaration of Independence was modelled on the Declaration of Arbroath, an eloquent appeal for the recognition of Scottish independence
and sovereignty, signed on 6 April 1320.
