April War in the Two Cullodens

In the decades-long Genocide of Culloden Moor, the Scottish Highlanders were forced off their land from April 1746 to 1810 and some, all the way to America.  In Culloden, Georgia the Scottish and their descendants  plied their merchant and farming trades from 1790 until the American Civil War, when a second bloody Battle of Culloden was lost in April 1865 to the North, 119 years later, nearly to the day.

The Two Cullodens are connect in history by date of battle and the writings of Sir Walter Scott, who with his heroic Rob Roy and political propaganda tried to raise a Scottish worker’s rebellion in the UK until his death in 1832. His propaganda was so effective that it may have pushed the south – filled with Scots and a couple of generations of descendants – into cessation and Civil War.  Novelist and statesman Mark Twain certainly believed so, inventing the curse “Great Scott!” to make his opinion plain.
