Scottish American Heritage

The influence of Scottish ancestry is woven deeply into the fabric of America. Many of the founding fathers of our country were of Scottish ancestry. The Scots as well as the Irish fled political oppression, poverty, and starvation to come to the new world of America. From within these ranks of impoverished immigrants came some of America’s most innovative industrialists, teachers, inventors, naturalists and artists. The people of Scotland continue today to enrich our American culture.
