On 11th September Wallace and Murray achieved a stunning victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge. The English left with 5,000 dead on the field, including their despised treasurer, Hugh Cressingham, whose flayed skin was taken as a trophy of victory and to make a belt for Wallace’s sword. The Scots suffered one significant casualty, Andrew Murray, who was badly wounded and died two months later. 'Commander of the Army of the Kingdom...

    William Wallace of Scotland's name (center) written in Latin: Edinburgh, Scotland, Jan 13, 2012 / 03:52 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A 14th-century letter asking Pope Boniface VIII to look favorably upon the Scottish patriot Sir William Wallace during his visit to Rome has been returned to Scotland. “This document is an enigma,” said George MacKenzie, head of National Records of Scotland at the unveiling ceremony in Edinburgh on Jan. 12. “It’s a letter from the French king to his officials at the Vatican mentioning Wallace, but we don't know what his business was with the Pope. What we do know is...

    What is the difference between Sir William Wallace & Sarah Palin? Besides, age, sex, weapon choice, hair color, etc. Both were hated\betrayed by "The elitists on both sides of the fence" Both were drawn & quartered in front of an audience by elitist's. Both had the courage to risk their lives and families lives\honor for freedom from Tyranny. Palin will be thrown under the bus by republican elitists any day now as did the (Bruce clan) throw Wallace under the horse. The only missing similarity would be Primae Noctis which the left would passionately embrace if given the chance. educate...

    CROWDS of more than 1,000 flocked to Smithfield to mark the 700th anniversary of the death of Scottish hero William Wallace - also known as Braveheart. The freedom fighter was hung, drawn and quartered outside the church of St Bartholomew the Great in 1305 after being betrayed by a Scottish knight in service to King Edward the First. His life story was famously given a Hollywood makeover by actor/director Mel Gibson in 1995 for the film Braveheart. But no national celebrations were planned to mark the 700th anniversary of his execution so author and historian David Ross, who wrote bestseller...

    Bloggers should enjoy traditional press freedoms and not face regulation as political groups, lawmakers and online journalists said Friday. In separate letters, Democratic lawmakers and Internet commentators urged the Federal Election Commission to make sure that political Web sites that serve as focal points for political discussion, such as and, don't have to comply with campaign-finance rules. "Curtailing blogs and other online publications will dampen the impact of new voices in the political process and will do a disservice to the millions of voters who rely on the Web for original, insightful political commentary," said the Online Coalition,...
