Glasgow and The Revolutionary War in America

In response to Tony Pollard’s tweet:

referring to Alexander Garden’s involvement in the Revolutionary War in America, who later published Anecdotes of the Revolutionary War (1822), we have been looking at other students who were involved directly or indirectly in the Revolutionary War:

Arts student, John Houston who graduated as a surgeon in Pennsylvania and went on to serve during the War.

The Brooke brothers from Virginia were interrupted in their studies at Glasgow by the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, and forced to flee the country – read the stories of Laurence and Robert.

There are others whose lives were affected by the Revolutionary War, you can find the current list here. However, there are, and will be, more Revolutionary War-related stories added to the International Story, but if you know of any more stories now, please get in touch!
