American Military Setts

American military setts can be seen at many of our military institutions. As they began these groups had a large proportion of Scottish-Americans in their original ranks. They made excellent fighting men, their skills well learned in Scotland.

From pre-Revolutionary War through our modern warfare, the Scots have stood us well. A few names through the years are John Paul Jones, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, ‘Uncle Sam’, Stonewall Jackson, JEB Stuart, George Patton, and Douglas MacArthur highlight the list.

Their deeds and accomplishments have served and saved us and many other peoples.
