National Tartan Day was created to celebrate Scottish history and the achievements of people of Scottish descent around the world.
The Declaration o' Aiberbrothock: A letter, dated 6 April 1320 was signed at Arbroath, written by Scottish barons and addressed to Pope John XXII.
Steeped in turmoil and political intrigue the declaration was part of a broader campaign for independence from England's Norman kings and a plea to lift the excommunication of Robert The Bruce.
Every April, at the Boulder County Fairgrounds, in Longmont Colorado celebrates Tartan Day. This year the weather could not have been better, warm with NO WIND (which played havoc with the tents last year).
The reenactors were so friendly and very knowledgeable regarding the various clans and displays.
