Subject: Origins: Donald Macgillavry
Really like the song as sung by Andy Stewart, but trying to find some history as to exctly what the song is about? Looked up Donald Macgillavry on the internet and found a lot of facts about him as to settling in Ontario etc, but can't seem to find any reference as to what the song is suppose to be about, the Jacobite uprising? I don't know but would greatly appreciate any insight into this.
