The Aberdonians

Excerpt from The Aberdonians: And Other Lowland Scots It was my intention, originally, to discuss this subject as part of a larger work, at present is hand, on the history of Aberdeen and the Aberdonians. But the occurrence of two historical Scottish anniversaries in the present year brought into view a large number of articles, and some books, that were written so obviously in doubt, or under a misapprehension as to the actual racial conditions in Scotland in the middle centuries that it seemed wise to embody what could be said, from new and hitherto unsuspected sources, in a separate special monograph. The first of these anniversaries was the sexcentenary of Bannockburn, 1314, in regard to which there was a disposition to assume - in some cases, a definite claim - that the Scottish War of Independence was carried on, and its success for the nation ultimately assured, by a race of Celts in Lowland Scotland against English from the south side of the Border.
