Tue., Jul 29Greenlaw Lecture Series - Tuesdays
Scotland ~ Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow


Lecturer: Barry A. Greenlaw


Five hundred years ago last fall, England and Scotland fought perhaps the most decisive battle between the two neighboring countries. An invading Scottish army, under the leadership of King James IV, was soundly defeated by the English forces and the King was killed. England's dominance over its northern neighbor was secured; this was eventually confirmed by the Union of the two crowns in 1603, and by the stronger Act of Union of 1706, which resulted in the United Kingdom of Great Britain.

This coming September 18th another significant battle will take place, not on the Field of Flodden, but at the polls when Scottish voters will signify their wishes in a referendum; to remain a part of the United Kingdom or to return to their long-ago status as an independent country.

This 4-week course will consider the last five hundred years of Scottish history and English-Scottish relations, and will take a look at Scotland today on the evening of the vote. How will this small country, to which so many Americans have a love affair and close affinity, change if the voters choose independence? How will the potential breakup affect the rest of the UK? What will be the impact on the economy, the military, defense, membership in NATO and the European Union?

Finally, this course will also take a look at Scotland today, to discover what is new and exciting, no matter which way the vote turns out.


Scotland ~ Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is a 4-week course to be held July 8-30 at St. Martin's Episcopal Church Activity Center, 717 Sage Road, Houston, TX 77056. The course will be presented three separate times each week - on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, 9:30-11:30 a.m., and on Tuesday evenings, 7:00-9:00 p.m. The fee for the course is $80 for the four sessions.

If you have questions or need further information, please contact Barry Greenlaw at bagreenlaw@aol.com or 713-781-9028.


Confirmation of Registration will be sent out a week before the first session.

Make checks payable to Barry A. Greenlaw and enroll by returning this form and fee to Barry A. Greenlaw, P.O. Box 870, Columbus, TX 78934
