S1E8: Outlander in the Cape Fear: Scottish Forever
Play • 40 min

"Burgwin-Wright Presents... Outlander in the Cape Fear" explores the history of Colonial North Carolina through its depiction in the book and TV series "Outlander."

On this week's episode, we are jumping into the future for a look at the current culture of Scottish heritage in North Carolina. The story of the Scots in America begins in the early 1700s, before Claire and Jamie Fraser arrive in 1767 in the "Outlander" story. The immigration of those Highlanders put down roots that have flourished into a thriving present-day community that celebrates its ancestors through Scottish Societies and events like the Port City Highland Games on May 14.

This week's guest is Bob McLeod, a board member and former co-president of the Scottish Society of Wilmington. For more information about the Scottish Society of Wilmington, including how to join, visit WilmingtonScots.org.
