    SCOTLAND FOR AYE!!

    The Black Watch! Fraser¿s Highlanders! Montgomery¿s Highlanders! Names familiar to all serious historians, genealogists, history buffs, and re-enactors as well. The story of these three regiments of Highland soldiers (the 42nd, 78th Foot, and 77th Foot, respectively) whose exploits in the North American continent during the mid-eighteenth century helped shape the future of both the USA and Canada and provided the background for many heroic tales found in books and film is presented in Volume One of this two volume work by Ian Macpherson McCulloch, CD, a native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, himself a lieutenant colonel (1963) in command of The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada in Montreal, Quebec. The text embodies first hand accounts of the everyday lives of the soldiers and the plans and insights of the men who led them into battle. Working from actual documents, diaries, and letters which are liberally quoted throughout the text, McCulloch takes the reader from the establishment of the regiments, to the departure of the transports across the stormy Atlantic 'haughty, full of peaks and valleys, thundering, rendering, boisterous, flashing' and the arrival of the ships [the last being the snow, Duke of Argyle, which had run aground off Sandy Hook (New Jersey)] in New York where the citizens sent 'a very Handsome Refreshment . . . down to the Officers and private Men consisting of Oxen, Sheep, Fowls, Strawberries, Cherries, Pease, etc. which proved a very acceptable Present,' and on through every battle, field experience, and personal accomplishments and tragedies until the units were either disbanded or recalled to Britain after the fighting was over. Told in a lively, entertaining manner, often using the men¿s own words, Sons of the Mountains covers all theaters of war from Newfoundland, to Ticonderoga, the Great Lakes, and to the swamps and cane fields of the 'Sugar Islands' in the West Indies. In additions to incidents of battle, here are descriptions of the women who followed the troops, the foibles of the bad leaders ['the most Shilly Shally, Whistly Wally, Jacky Wagtail that ever my Eyes beheld. . . .He gives our Serjt Major half a dozen Contradictory orders of a morning and at last gives out none at all. . . . '] and the sensitivity of the good ones, the attitudes toward the French and the Indians, plus many other topics seen through the eyes of the Highland soldier. The text is well illustrated with art work, maps, contemporary prints, and portraits from the collections of various museums in the USA, Canada, and Scotland. Volume Two is a genealogist¿s delight. Here are biographical entries of every officer of the Black Watch, Fraser¿s Highlanders, and Montgomery¿s Highlanders who served in North America. The officers are listed in order of their regimental seniority during the Seven Year¿s War instead of alphabetically, but it is not difficult to manoeuver through this section. Over 350 officers from all the major clans are listed, many with parentage and/or other relationships given. A sample of one of the (shorter) entries is shown below: John Campbell, [3] yr of Melfort (1730-1790) (whose portrait appears on the front cover) Lieut: 30 July 1757, 77th Foot appointed adjutant, 77th Foot, 11 July 1759 resigned adjutancy, 1 February 1763 transferred on promotion Captain: 1 February 1763, 42nd Foot half-pay, 24 October 1763 Major: c. 1779, Argyll (Western) Fencibles. Son and heir of Archibald Campbell and Annabel Campbell, sister of John Campbell of Barcaldine. Nephew of Major Allan Campbell, 42nd Foot (see above) and first cousin of Major Alex Campbell and Captain Mungo Campbell of the 77th Foot (see 77th Register). Came to North America as a lieutenant in one of the 77th¿s Additional Companies. Participated in all major campaigns of Montgomery¿s Highlanders, including the capture of Montreal in 1760. Transferred to the 42nd Foot on promotion to captain while recuperating at
