That was true enough, and it was the cannons of Cumberland that did them in. If the Highlanders had cannons, history would have went very differently in 1745.

Thanks much. I know little about Scotland and its history. Off hand I would say they are tougher people than the English because they live North of them in a harsher climate with (I think) a more windswept topography. Just the way they speak is more clipped and tight
