    I may be American (who declared for independence 30 years after that ban), but I’m part Scottish too. So the kilt/tartan thing is just absurd.

    1746 was the year that the Scottish rebels known as Jacobites were defeated once and for all at the Battle of Culloden

    Yes, where the Duke of Cumberland ordered the wounded Highlanders massacred; it took the British Army many years to live that incident down. Also, according to legend, the Duke of Cumberland supposedly wrote the despicable order on the back of a playing card.
