      As many have noticed, the clan system may have ended, but clanship lives on.

      There were a whole bunch of postings on this subject about a year ago.
      A balance view would be that Jacobites who followed Bonnie Prince Charlie were Traitors to the new Combined Kingdom, there aim was
      to reestablish Catholicism and maintain the old clan system.
      Don't forget there was another rebellion in 1715 where the participants were treated , for the time lightly,. The majority of Scots people did not support either rebellion.

      While this suggestion is a series of novels, I think the authors historical research is excellent and I certainly felt I knew a lot more about the Jacobites after reading all of Diana Gabaldon's books. The first in the series is The Outlander.
