40598Re: [scots-origins] Jacobites
- Jun 11, 2014It seems to me, it was some Lowland Scots politicians and business people, who sold out to the English and left the Highlanders
and the majority of Lowlanders "high and dry".
Don't forget, the history of Scotland, since that time, was written by the conqueror, not the vanquished Scots people..... and, of course,
the Scots traitors who supported the invasion of their country.
I find it extremely difficult to believe the majority of Scots people were neutral when it came to the battle to oust their foreign English oppressors.
I don't the English government asking the Scots that a vote was to be taken to decide the matter. It was not a rebellion, it was a brave nation attempting to protect itself against an invading foreign army.
Now the Scottish people will, at long last, have the opportunity to decide if they wish to become a separate nation.
God Bless an independent Scotland!

The majority of Scots people did not support either rebellion.AngusIn a message dated 6/10/2014 1:55:08 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time, email@example.com writes:
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.On 2014-03-27, at 8:56 AM, 'loucook' loucook51@... [scots-origins] wrote:I would like to read more about the Jacobites. Any suggestions?
