Happy 4th of July

Hey, everyone, here's a happy Fourth of July to all my American readers! Take a look at my post from last year where I talked about the similarities on the Declaration of Independence and the Scottish Declaration of Arbroath. It's always been amazing to see the likeness between the American and Scottish wars for independence. As a treat, I will be posting a short story I wrote a while ago on my other blog, The First Scribbles. Go read it and tell me what you think :)

Happy Independence Day, and let us not forget all those men who fought and died in the American Revolution and who signed their lives away on this back in 1775.

Slainte, Hazel


  1. And I echo this.
    Happy Birthday USA. Your Republic influenced France and of course Ireland.
    In the modern world we recognise that the truest nobility is our own. And the nations.
    The passion and love that motivated pre-Enlightenment Scots and Irish people is the same today for American people.

  2. Yes, It's very true. The French Revolution never would have happened if the American's didn't give them the idea. (And it Ben Franklin didn't cause the French to go bankrupt!) I'm reading about the 1916 Irish Rebellion right now as well, and I was surprised to find so many similarities.
