Scottish Soldier Laid to Rest in U.S. After Nearly 250 Years

This story attracted a lot of attention in the U.S.  I found it quite moving.  The soldier had been a member of 71st Regiment of Foot, Fraser's Highlanders, a unit raised in Scotland  for service in North America during the Revolutionary War.  He was killed in South Carolina in 1780 during the Battle of Camden, a major victory for the British forces.  Mel Gibson's highly fictionalized movie "The Patriot"  features the Battle of Camden and subsequent battles, but is nonsense in terms of what really happened.
