Another Full Month

And now we move onto the second month of our Summer Battle Season. However, apart from the battles, July also has several other things. American Independence Day for example. I'll be back Sunday to talk about that with a special post on the similarities of the Declaration of Independence and the Declaration of Arbroath. And there are also three special birthdays to celebrate this month, one next week, so be sure to check back often so you can say happy birthday to some very special people!

This month has two big battles: The Battle of Falkirk (1297) and the Battle of Killiecrankie. Because there are several events this month that have to do with John Graham of Claverhouse (Bonnie Dundee) I have decided that the last couple weeks in July are going to be pretty much dedicated to him. And then, the Battle of Falkirk will tie in nice to August which I have declared my official William Wallace Month, so if you want to know a lot about William Wallace, stick around for August!

With all that said and done, here's another battle song just for fun and I will be back next week with more posts!

Slainte, Hazel
