1820 · """The """"Radical War""""."""

Age 1

The Scottish Insurrection was a week of strikes and unrest with demands for reform in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The economic downturn after the Napoleonic war ended, brought increasing unrest with the Artisan workers in Scotland, seeking action to reform the government. But the insurrection was largely forgotten about, as attention was focused on the better publicized Radical events in England.

Rugby Football 'invented' at Rugby School.
1854 · Great North of Scotland Railway

Age 35

Being one of the two smallest railways in 1923, the Great North of Scotland Railway carried its first passengers from Kittybrewster to Huntly in 1854. In the 1880s the railways were refurbished to give express services to the suburban parts in Aberdeen. There were junctions with the Highland Railway established to help connect Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Moray counties. The railway started to deliver goods from the North Sean and from the whisky distilleries in Speyside. With the implementation of bus services and the purchase of the British Railway the Great North of Scotland Railway was discontinued.
