🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 With the front page of today's @ScotNational in mind, by sheer coincidence, I bought a book last week called 'Addresses Against Incorporating Union 1706-1707'. The book cover.
Apparently, Glasgow was divided on the Union and it 'stimulated unusual levels of protest'. It also states that 'strong anti-union sentiment' was found amongst Glasgow artisans.
The artisans demonstrated literacy and political engagement by attaching papers reading 'No incorporating union' to their hats.
The Colquhouns told the Union where to go.
