My #scottishhighlands #ancestor, Dugal McQueen #jacobite || "Dugal McQueen arrived in Maryland in 1716 aboard the ironically named “Friendship”, probably in chains and certainly under edict never to return to his native Scotland. He had been captured the previous autumn at the battle of Preston, part of the doomed first Jacobite rebellion aimed at restoring the Stuarts to the throne [1]. Given a choice between exile and the barbaric ritual of hanging, drawing, and quartering, he and his fellow transportees had sensibly chosen exile." || #macqueen #mcqueen #ancestry #constantandfaithful #scotland #scottish #highland #ancestors #colonialamerica #Maryland #history #family #stories

Foto scattata proprio nel momento in cui uno scacco al re veniva subito ritirato.

“The blame for the débâcle at Derby must be shared equally by the prince and Lord George Murray. Both suffered forever afterwards from the momentous decision taken at the council on 5 December 1745. For Murray the retreat meant ruin and exile. For the prince it was the beginning of the collapse of his own personality (...) The prince, who had trekked at the head of his army on the way south (‘The first time I saw this loyal army (..): The Brave Prince marching on foot at their head like a Cyrus or Trojan hero, drawing admiration and love from all those who beheld him, raising their long dejected hearts (...) I felt a paternal ardour pervade my veins’ - John Daniels, voulunteer from Lancashire, Lifeguard) now rode depressed and sullen on horseback in the rear. Where on the march south he went to bed regularly at 11 pm, often sleeping fully clothed, and was up again at 3 am, on the retreat he slept late, drink a lot (...) There were to be others, in some ways greater, shocks to his psychic system, but after Derby, the prince was never the same again, except (...) for a brief period when his very survival was at stake in the heater. Just as the journey south fueled the positive side of his personality (...) stronger and stronger until (...) Derby, so on the withdrawal north the negative charges in his shaky ego seemed to increase exponentially (...) Even men with the strongest core of personal identity were shaken by the retreat (...) once they released they were heading back towards Scotland (...) the clansmen’s morale visibly plummeted. Ululations and cries of despair rent the air (...) At Versailles Louis XV had finally ordered an invasion of England in support of the prince (...) Ironically, news of the retreat from Derby reached Richelieu just as he arrived at Boulogne to take command (...) psychological superiority was thrown away” - Frank McLynn

“Those deep and salt waters of pain, anger, resentment, began to flood the heart (Charles’) which they were later to overflow, drowning, at last, love, kindness, trust, compassion” - Andrew Lang

All aboard the Hogwarts Express!! After getting my butterbeer hot chocolate and authentic every flavor beans, I got to disembark at Hogwarts Castle! Unfortunately the castle isn’t real though...

@reenactordieter and I outside Edinburgh Castle on our first full day in the city. Seeing him in his highlander impression and me in modern clothes makes me feel kind of jealous 😝 Ill have to kick the 18th century into gear when I get home! •

Life's a struggle when you're a muggle! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The Glenfinnan Viaduct was built in the end of the 19th century and the steam train Jacobite, featured in many movies such as Harry Potter, still runs today. You can take the train ride from Fort William to Mallaig and cross the viaduct! How awesome!🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
So like the most of people, I didn't receive my letter to Hogwarts 💔 on top of that.. the Jacobite was not running the period we visited Scotland, it was in England for maintenance, so we didn't get to see the famous steam train 🚂🚂I wished I wasn't a muggle 🤷🏻‍♀️

The Menzies Castle was the seat of the Chiefs of Clan Menzies for over 500 years. Situated in a strategic location, it was involved in much of the turbulent history of the Highlands. During the second Jacobite rising the Castle first hosted both Bonnie Prince Charlie, who rested on his way to Culloden in 1746 and then, just four days later, the Duke of Cumberland, son of the British Monarch and commander of the Government forces.

Rescued as a ruin in 1957 by the then recently re-formed Menzies Clan Society, the Castle has been lovingly restored by generations of Society members and was placed into a charitable trust in 1993. It is open to all as a visitor attraction, museum, Clan centre for the Menzies Clan and venue for weddings, concerts and other hire. We use all proceeds exclusively for our continued restoration and maintenance of the Castle, its Walled Garden and the Old Kirk of Weem.

The great hall of Edinburgh Castle is breath taking. The whole castle was absolutely amazing to wander through, with so many buildings and rooms. It took us almost a whole day to see everything 🥰 •
