Happy Tartan Day

Today, April 6th, marks 692 years since the Declaration of Arbroath was written as a letter to the Pope to recognize Scotland as an independent nation. The United States Declaration borrowed heavily from this document and, because of this, April 6 has been proclaimed by Congress and signed into law by the president over the last two decades as National Tartan Day.
