The Mountains Give Us Strength
OUR STORYLINE: Takes place deep in Appalachia, where 81,000 Scottish Lowlanders and some English migrated to Ulster, Ireland for the opportunity to reestablish themselves and their families in a new land. Serving a major role in the American Revolution, these Celtic men and women dug in and held tight as libertarians of the New World, weaving a rich history of rebels, patriots and tradition. In typical RenFaire tradition, ARF will weave a historical fiction; ours is unique in that it is based on the strong roots established by the Scots-Irish, which still hold the mountains today.
