REID, Whitelaw. The Scot in America and the Ulster Scot. London: Macmillan, 1912. 65 pages. A facsimile of the text of Whitelaw Reid's address to the Edinburgh Philosophical Institution in 1911 and the Presbyterian Historical Society in Belfast, 1912. Reid was at one time Benjamin Harrison's Vice-presidential candidate and later served as the US ambassador to Britain (1905-1912). In his address he describes the social, political, military and scientific influence the Scots, Ulster-Scots (or Scotch-Irish) had had on the development of the United States. "In 1736 an Ulster Scot, Henry McCullock, settled between three and four thousand of his countrymen on a land grant of 64,000 acres in what is now the County of Duplin, North Carolina. A few years later a steady stream of Ulster Scots was pouring into Philadelphia, some going West towards Pittsburg, and still farther to Kentucky and Tennessee. Others turning South sooner and filling the valleys of West Virginia, the western parts of North and South Carolina, and even Georgia, with rough clearings, log-cabin school-houses and Presbyterian churches. As early as 1729, 5000 of them entered Pennsylvania alone in a year." Amongst other interesting points made by the author is that the anti-slavery movement had its roots amongst the Scottish covenanters in South Carolina and East Tennessee, and not in New England as many had surmised.
