Scottish Book - Driv'n by Fortune

Mr. Allison is the author of the book, Driv’n by Fortune: The Scots’ March to Modernity in America, 1745–1812, about the men of the 78th Fraser’s Highlanders, from the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion in Scotland, through the Seven Years’ War and the American Revolution, to the War of 1812.

Originally from Scotland, Mr. Allison immigrated to Canada in 1968 and later taught in McGill University’s Faculty of Education. He was the 2016 recipient of the Gordon Atkinson Memorial Prize in Highland Military History, awarded annually by the Quebec Thistle Council.

There is a seven minute video on YouTube here which made me want to read it!

Thanks to Gail Devers
