: Bushy Run is a Pennsylvania state run site. No digs are allowed, it is ground that is not to be disturbed. When we camp during August reenactment, we are not allowed to have dug firepits. Bushy Run, like Ligonier, Ticonderoga, etc., is a special site to the hearts of Highland troops. As I mentioned, at these sites there are "feelings", "sightings", etc. Our fallen bretheren are not forgotten. Duty, honor, "God - King- and Regiment", are still ideals which are upheld.

Dr. Uncle Mark and Sgt. Malcolm,
I'm very touched by your sensitive, compassionate and dignified treatment of this site and thereby, to all those who lie below it. I too know of the 'feelings' and the 'sightings'...
Mo righ's, mo dhuthaich! Aut pax aut bellum! (For King, for country! In peace or in war!)... yes, indeed!! In 1757, Lord Lovat of Fraser raised 1800 of his clansmen for service in America where they fought with distinction. It's likely some of my own people lie beneath that (not so foreign) soil.
'Pax aye'! But... 'Je suis Prest',
