thank you for that cadet I feel better knowing that you are supposedly related to William Wallace. Thanks for letting us know, so now when I get older I can tell my grandchildren that I once joined a forum that included an alleged ancestor of William Wallace! You know, scientists say that 1 in every 200 men on this planet is related to Genghis Khan, but you don't hear them barking their worth. Listen, the world will go on if you die tomorrow, and the people who remember your lineage will soon be dust. As with mine, as with everyones. So, maybe instead of flaunting your ego you stick to what this website was created for - The men and women who have so gracious and mercilessly given all of us war fanatics something to write about - not their relatives.

Hmmmm.. somebody needs a nap... However, I don't think that a Great Great Uncle quite gets you back to the 1290's early 1300's...

Personally I loved the movie - made a good story even if the author never bothered to check a history book before writing it.

Stephen: Stephen is my name. I the most wanted man on my island, except I'm not on my island, of course. More's the pity.
Hamish: "Your island"? You mean Ireland?
Stephen: Yeah. It's mine.
Hamish: You're a madman.
Stephen: [nods and starts laughing, then Hamish does as well] I've come to the right place, then.

History Channel did a show on Braveheart. When it started with the film maker saying he wouldn't let the facts get in the way of a good story.....

This looks like the copy which I read, but I sold it off in the '80s more's the pity sigh...

Personally, I doubt that black blood really spurted from the head of Mr. C as he came roaring out of the stream, because eventually he would have run out of blood. But you never know with old folk tales...
For those who do not want to read the entire book, it centers around a squabble over whose bull is better, who can fight harder, who can outwit whom, etc...

One of my favorite "hero" movies. When they all show their arses to the foe. I kinda like the Bruce guy too. Good at heart.
But, of when Wallace picks up the fabric he had given to his lovely wife, after she was murdered, keeps it. That's after he kills her murderer, when it's in the dried bluid.
In the end, when he is being drawn and quartered, musters up the energy to throat out "FREEDOM"! Then drops the embroidered handkerchief that she so lovingly and freely made for him...OMG! That's an open mouth cry for me! I say that line so often.
Makes me want to go to Scotland one day- see the the country, the strong people. Not the " usual tour". We'll get there too. Any comments on that? Because we are Americans. Different though. I "heard" through folks that the Scots... just rumor... don't like us.
