    One reason the Highlanders are so popular is that they had unique uniforms. In such cases, these arms are differenced from the chief's, much like a clan armiger. There is no official list of clan septs, and the decision of what septs a clan has is left up to the clan itself. Rents that had been paid in kind were converted to being due in cash. There is no doubt that the aftermath of the uprising saw savage punitive expeditions against clans that had supported the Jacobites, and legislative attempts to demolish clan culture. For an area with such a small population in a country with such a small population, this is pretty incredible.

    In the case of armigers they wear their own crest within a plain circlet showing their own motto or slogan, not a belt and buckle showing the chief's. Several Highland regiments raised for service against France and its allies fared better and survived into the 20th Century in one form or another — the Seaforth Highlanders, the Cameron Highlanders and the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. Many Highland estates were no longer owned by clan chiefs, [a] but landlords of both the new and old type encouraged the emigration of destitute tenants to Canada and, later, to Australia. The 42nd was the most overzealous, and it charged towards the center while the other two regiments took the flanks and outflanked the enemy. The British Government has always tried to keep the Army as small as possible — often in reality too small to do all the jobs required of it.

    A work under a similar title was brought out by the present publishers upwards of thirty years ago, under the care of Dr James Browne, and met with a sale so extensive and sustained as to prove that it supplied a real want. Think big skies, mind-blowing landscapes, superb food and hospitable people - and you've got the Scottish Highlands. Of these, the men usually used the basket-hilted claymore, the Highland Pistol, and the dirk. They were then sent to America where they also joined the New York Garrison. It was found that when the Gaelic Schools Society started teaching basic literacy in Gaelic in the early decades of the 19th century, there was an increase in literacy in English.
