Scottish American Heritage Month – APRIL, more info
About: Uncle Sam, Davey Crockett, John Paul Jones, Mickey Mouse, George Washington, Neil Armstrong – all 100% American, right? Wrong. All these US icons also share more than a little Scottish DNA. But that’s only half the story, because the strong links between Scotland and America go way beyond this and can be found in the deepest roots of everything from politics to business.
You see, right from the formation of the country, Scots and their descendants have been front and centre in shaping America’s laws, political and education system, and business success. Today, that two-way trans-Atlantic trade – in visitors, innovation, investment, business and friendship – continues.
