Nearly ever history buff has heard of this one. Not specifically devoted to gay historical fiction, this site nevertheless is careful to note what fiction writers have said about Alexander's sexuality and to mention any background the writers had that may have influenced their treatment of that subject.

How and when did you come here?'' Edward told his story at length, suppressing his quarrel with Fergus; for being himself partial to Highlanders, he did not wish to give any advantage to the Colonel's national prejudice against them. ``Then that little limb of the devil has cheated the gallows, for cut-throat was written in his face; though'' (turning to Lady Emily) ``it was a very handsome face too.---But for you, Edward, I wish you would go down again to Cumberland, or rather I wish you had never stirred from thence, for there is an embargo on all the seaports, and a strict search for the adherents of the Pretender; and the tongue of that confounded woman will wag in her head like the clack of a mill, till somehow or other she will detect Captain Butler to be a feigned personage.'' ``Do you know anything,'' asked Waverley, ``of my fellow-traveller?'' ``Her husband was my serjeant-major for six years; she was a buxom widow, with a little money---he married her---was steady, and got on by being a good drill.

This discovery he communicated in a whisper to Lord Boteler, who commanded the prisoner to be conveyed to Queenhoo-Hall, and closely guarded; meanwhile he anxiously inquired of young St. SF/Fantasy readers are notably willing to wade deeply into a story without understanding a lot about the world, as long as it's a good story and as long as how the world works is revealed eventually. Shortly after World War II, as a token of support for this concept, most nations joined the United Nations.

Wentworth set sail, I suspect their destination is the new republic on the other side of the Atlantic. He did not find the chief himself, but he summoned on board the vessel which he brought with him to the Hebrides, MacDonald of Boisdale, the brother of Clanronald, a man of considerable intelligence, and who was supposed to have much interest with the chief. A few resolute men might easily have cut off the detachment; but of the inhabitants some were favourable, many indifferent, and the rest overawed.

If it is shot down you don’t have to worry about a pilot for one. Both cases resulted negatively, with Vader getting three of his limbs cut off by Obi-Wan and Luke getting dropped down Jabba's trap door. Those who have perused the curious Letters from the Highlands, published about 1726, will find instances of such atrocious characters which fell under the writer's own observation, though it would be most unjust to consider such villains as representatives of the Highlanders of that period, any more than the murderers of Marr and Williamson can be supposed to represent the English of the present day.

About a bow-shot from the end of the village appeared the enclosures, proudly denominated the Parks of Tully-Veolan, being certain square fields, surrounded and divided by stone walls five feet in height. Total war is warfare by any means possible, disregarding the laws of war, placing no limits on legitimate military targets, using weapons and tactics resulting in significant civilian casualties, or demanding a war effort requiring significant sacrifices by the friendly civilian population.

Whether we admire the Crusaders or not, it is a fact that the world we know today would not exist without their efforts. There was no resisting so tempting a proposal, notwithstanding that the Great Man, under whose patronage he had enlisted, and by whose banner he had hitherto stood firm, was the principal object of the proposed attack by the new allies. And first let me say, that although the urgent necessity of the case requires that it should be pleaded in every possible form which its advocates can devise---although I press upon Scotland the necessity of being importunate, steady, and unanimous--- although I show to Ireland the deep interest which she also must feel in the question at issue, yet it is to England herself, and to her representatives in Parliament, that, taking upon me, however unworthy, to speak for my Country, when the task is perhaps an obnoxious one, I make my most immediate, and I trust not an ineffectual appeal.

Talk about joining the Military with civilians, service members, and veterans. The whole may be moderately calculated at an expense of more than five per cent., a charge which must ultimately be laid on the Scottish manufactures, agricultural operations, fisheries, and other public and private undertakings; many of which are not at present returning twelve or fifteen per cent. of profit at the uttermost.

You saw when Corrinaschian raised his voice in great passion, and laid his hand upon his sword, Waverley lifted his head as if he had just awaked from a dream, and asked, with great composure, what the matter was.'' ``Well, and did not the laughter they fell into at his absence of mind, serve better to break off the dispute than any thing he could have said to them?'' ``Would you have him peace-maker general between all the gunpowder Highlanders in the army?
