Link: History of the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland
« on: Sunday 08 June 08 22:20 BST (UK) »
The Orange order is the oldest and biggest Protestant fraternity in Scotland. It's a misconception that the Order in Scotland was started by immigrants from Ulster ...
the early lodges were started by soldiers returning from Ireland.

There's always been a close relationship between the north of Ireland and Scotland ... it's not that far away ... from Fair Head in Co. Antrim to the Mull of Kintyre the distance is eleven miles and from Donaghadee in Co. Down to Portpatrick is twenty one miles. People could sail that distance, do their day's business, and be back before nightfall. A large number of Presbyterian Scots settled in Ulster in the seventeenth century.

A man died this week, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who stared man's inhumanity to man in the face and wrote about it in his books. I wonder what he would write about these people.
