Happy William Wallace Day

Recommended Posts

I don't remember where I saw it but I put it on my calendar a while back, and if I'm wrong, someone please feel free to correct me but, "Happy William Wallace Day" everybody.

It is indeed William Wallace day, though a somber sort of day... On this day in 1305 he was dragged several miles through the streets of London behind a horse, then slowly hanged.. Cut down while still alive and disemboweled again while still alive... His organs were burnt, he was then beheaded, and quartered. His head went on a pike on London bridge, his body quarters were sent to locations across England and Scotland.

I raised a pint of wee heavy tonight at dinner to honor sir William Wallace

Well, not "happy" when you put it that way. Just a day to remember him and his part in history.
