Oil And Water

Suspicion O’ Government Runs In Scottish Blood

I’m reading about Scottish immigration to the Antebellum South and I came across this page with this quote that I though worth sharing: ” Highlanders were suspicious of the road construction – seeing it as a government intrusion on their lives.” To put it into perspective, the period he’s referring to was one of major social change and urbanisation.

Texas Self Suffiency Act
