Program 1519:  For Freedom Alone  (July 5, 2012)  Week 27  

In 1320 a landmark document set out the principles of democracy on which the U.S. constitution was later based. The Declaration of Arbroath is remembered today in Tartan Day celebrations held throughout the U.S. and in fiddler Laura McGhee's "Arbroath Suite."
