    Greetings from, Edinburgh, Capital City of Scotland. I have been interested in the War Between the States since I was a very young boy and have studied it most of my life.
    I've also been luck enough to travel and visit most of the battlefields of the Eastern Theatre and some of the Western Theatre.
    Here in Edinburgh we have a memorial to the Scots Soldiers who gave their lives fighting for the Union and I know of at least two graves of Scottish soldiers who fought for the Confederacy, both of which are decorated with the Confederate Battle flag.
    I discovered your web site and thought that I'd join to further my knowledge of the war that defined America.
    I chose as my user name one of my heroes, King James IV of Scotland, a truly renaissance prince, who spoke eight languages and died on 9th September 1513 on Flodden Field fighting at the head of his army against an English Army whose king was that infamous bully Henry VIII .
    Us Scots like to stand up against bullies.
    James

    Welcome From The Heart Of Dixie. I have visited our magnificent city on 2 different occasions, both golf related but I did take time out to spend a day on both trips to explore your city. There are not any cities here that have a castle in the middle of town. I hope to make back as there were a few golf courses I didn't get to play and a LOT of sites i didn't get to explore. Please be sure to stop by the Weapons & Ammo forum.
