Return of the (Scottish) Soldier - A Lecture in Manhattan

A lecture entitled, "Return of the Soldier: The Scots in America During World War I" will be presented by Yvonne McEwen of the University of Edinburgh in Manhattan on April 10th.

Read the announcement from the New York Public Library here. Learn more about Ms. McEwen here and the Center for the Study of the Two World Wars here.

This talk should provide insight into continued connections immigrants in America felt with their homeland and why the outbreak of war turned so many Scots into return migrants.
