"It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting --
for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself."
The Declaration of Arbroath, 6 April, 1320.

The American South is a geographical entity, a historical fact, a place in the imagination, and the homeland of an array of Scottish-Americans who consider themselves southerners. The region is often shrouded in romance and myth, but its realities are intriguing, as intricate, as its legends.

Throughout its long and complex history the South has sustained a diverse and distinct culture that refuses to be stereotyped.

Come join thousands of Southern Scottish-Americans as we foster a deeper understanding of the South's Scottish Americans who helped play a role in the founding of this nation, and who continue to make their marks in the fields of science, technology, medicine, government, politics, economics, architecture, literature, media, and visual and performing arts.

Scottish Americans, especially in the South, had 9 of the original 13 States of Scottish ancestry as Governors, and helped guide this nation through its most troubles times.

Forty-one Presidents of the United States have proven Scottish ancestry, most of them Southern born and bred.

About Us

John W. Cargile, Msc.D, (F.S.A. Scots) is a professional writer and researcher of things Scottish. He has written many articles for the "The Highlander: The Magazine of Scottish Heritage." He has also researched his surname Cargill and has found it to be one of the earliest surnames in Scotland (The Surnames of Scotland, by George F. Black). With all the research tools available, Mr. Cargile will be allowed to provide its members with insight into their family surname and where in Scotland your families might have begun.

Twelve monthly issues will be provided to share with its members timely features, articles, associations, Clans, and Highland Games in the South to enrich your knowledge of things Scottish.

We base our foundation on Senator Trent Lott (MS) Resolution that was passed in the U.S. Senate March 20, 1998 which reads:

WHEREAS April 6 has a special significance for all Americans, and especially those Americans of Scottish descent, because the Declaration of Arbroath, the Scottish Declaration of Independence, was signed on April 6, 1320 and the American Declaration of Independence was modeled on that inspirational document; and

WHEREAS this resolution honors the major role that Scottish Americans played in the founding of this Nation, such as the fact that almost half of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were of Scottish descent, the Governors in 9 of the original 13 States were of Scottish ancestry, and Scottish Americans successfully helped shape this country in its formative years and guide this Nation through its most troubled times; and

WHEREAS Scottish Americans have made monumental achievements and invaluable contributions that have led to America's preeminence in the fields of science, technology, medicine, government, politics, architecture, literature, media, and visual and performing arts; and

WHEREAS there are more than 200 organizations throughout the United States that honor Scottish heritage, tradition and culture, representing the hundreds of thousands of Americans of Scottish descent residing in every state; and

WHEREAS those numerous individuals, clans, societies, clubs, and fraternal organizations join us in recognizing the great contributions of the Scottish people to this state and nation; now therefore

BE IS RESOLVED BY THE U.S. SENATE that we hereby designate April 6, each year as National Tartan Day, in recognition of the immense contributions made by Scottish Americans.
