DARIEN, GEORGIA

The Scottish Plymouth Rock

Emmet Bondurant

New Inverness

New Inverness is the "Plymouth Rock" of Scottish heritage in the Southeastern United States. General James Oglethorpe, seeing the need to settle the Spanish-threatened coast below Savannah with soldiers whose fierceness in battle was legendary, sent out recruiters to Scotland to choose "the Freemen of Gentlemen's families...Industrious, laborious and Brave; speaking the Highland language." Only married men who were between 17 and 45 years of age and willing to take up arms would be allowed passage. The settler must agree to remain for at least three years. Each Highlander was provided with passage, provisions for one year, and granted fifty acres for himself and each member of his family; those who could afford to pay their own freight received 500 acres. On January 19, 1736, one hundred and seventy-seven Highlanders, mostly MacKays from the Strathnaver region under Hugh Mackay; and members of Clan Chattan, mostly MacIntoshes from Inverness under John ‘Mohr’ MacIntosh; arrived aboard the Prince of Wales. They disembarked on the northern bank of the Altamaha River, where they founded New Inverness. Their primary mission after settling the land was to protect the colony from the French to the west, the Spanish to the south, and fend off attacks from marauding Appalachicola and Yemassee Indians from Florida, who were supported by the Spanish. By the mid-1740s soldiering employed more men than any other occupation in Georgia. Originally named "New Inverness" the name was later changed to "Darien" to recall the ill-fated Scottish colony on the Darien Isthmus of Panama, which came to grief in 1698. Darien was the only Gaelic speaking community in the Georgia Colony. In many ways these people were unique - especially from the viewpoint of the Native Americans. The Scots enjoyed the best relationship with Native Americans, especially the Creeks. Most Scots did not wear boots like most other Europeans, but brogs; soft leather footwear similar to moccasins. They did not wear pants, but the feileadh mhor, or great kilt, and for the most part spoke Gaelic, not English. Their family structure was similar to the Native American's; tribal, or clan. The Scottish women had rights under the law and were allowed to own property. Women in the Darien community were trained in the "Manual of Arms" for muskets and were capable of serving the battery of cannon at Fort Darien when the men were on patrol or fighting the Spanish. On February 22, 1736, James Oglethorpe made his first visit to Darien. The occasion marked the first military parade of British troops to be held in Georgia. In their honor, Oglethorpe wore Highland dress. As they marched in review before him, the kilted Highlanders made an impressive sight in full regalia, with broadswords, targes, and dirks. In 1739 the Scots of Darien petitioned the Trustees of Georgia that no slavery be allowed in their colony, and so it remained until 1749, when that clause in their Charter was removed despite the strong protests of the Scots. The Scots of Darien made a re-statement of this anti-slavery position on the eve of the American Revolution in 1775. This petition, together with that of the Salzburghers (German immigrants at the colonial Georgia settlement of Ebenezer) was the earliest anti-slavery petition in the South.

 

Surnames of the first Scottish Highlanders who settled in New Inverness were: Bain, Bailie, Burgess, Calder, Calwell, Cameron, Campbell, Chisholm, Clark, Cleaness, Cogach, Crookshanks, Cuthbert, Denune, Dunbar, Forbes, Frazer, Glass, Grant, Grey, Joliffe, Kennedy, Lossley, McDonald, Macbean, Macoul, MacGilivary, MacKay, MacInver, McIntosh, Mackenzie, MacKinnon, MacLean, McLeod, Macmurrivick, Macpherson, MacQueen, Main, Miller, Monro, Morrison, Morchison, Murray, Ross, Shearer, Sinclair, Spence, Stewart, Sutherland, Tolmie, Truby, Watson.

 

The Highland Independent Company of Foot

The Highland Independent Company of Foot, raised in 1740 at New Inverness, was a colonial Georgia militia unit modeled after independent companies in Scotland. They wore Highland dress; feileadh mhor, plaid jacket and waistcoat, blue bonnet, Highland hose and brogs, and were armed with broadswords and targes, dirks, Scottish pistols, Brown Bess muskets and bayonets. A troop of mounted Highland Rangers had been recruited the previous year in 1739, and similarly uniformed and equipped in Highland style, with the exception of trousers and Brown Bess muskets sawn off into carbines. The Highlanders were nearly wiped out at the Battle of Fort Moosa in June 15, 1740, supporting James Oglethorpe’s abortive attack on St. Augustine. In July of 1742 the Spanish returned the favor and invaded Georgia, landing at St. Simon’s Island. On July 7th a combined force of British regulars (Oglethorpe’s Regiment of Foot, recruited in Gibraltar from conscripts of the Edinburgh Regiment of Foot; later to be known as the King’s Own Scottish Borderers) and Colonial militia, reinforced by new immigrants and Creeks, met the elite Spanish Grenadiers at a place soon to be known as Bloody Marsh. Under the initial Spanish fusillade, most of the British immediately broke and ran, leaving the left flank of the Highlanders up in the air. Dangerously exposed and heavily outnumbered, the Georgia Highlanders held fast and defeated the Spaniards, killing a third of the invasion force, including killing or capturing the entire Spanish officer corps, thus preserving Georgia as a British colony. Following the ignominious defeat of their nobles at the hands of what they considered to be savage, heathen (Protestant), barely civilized peasants, virtually indistinguishable in dress, manner, or speech from the “savages” they enslaved at their silver mines in Potosí, the Spanish retreated to their stronghold at Castillo de San Marco, and never again threatened Georgia or challenged the 13 British colonies to the north, for all practical purposes ceding the North American continent to England.

The American Revolution

At Fort Morris near Sunbury, Georgia, November 25, 1778 Lieutenant Colonel John MacIntosh responded to a British demand for surrender with the spirit which exemplified Georgia's Highlanders throughout the decades; "We would rather perish in a vigorous defense than accept your proposal sir," wrote McIntosh. "We sir, are fighting the battle of America and therefore disdain to remain neutral til its fate is determined. As to surrendering the Fort receive this reply, Come and take it!" The British declined his generous offer, but returned 45 days later with a much larger force, and bombarded the fort into submission. During the American Revolution, the kilted Highlanders of Darien would fight for American independence from Britain as 3rd Company (John MacIntosh, Captain; Lachlan MacIntosh, 1st Leutenant) of the1st Georgia Regiment under the command of John ‘Mohr’ MacIntosh’s son Colonel Lachlan MacIntosh (who would rise to the rank of Major General, in command of all Georgia troops). Still wearing their traditional Highland dress and arms, they were poorly supplied and ill equipped, mostly with weapons left over from the old Highland Independent Company of Foot, despite Lachlan MacIntosh’s repeated requests of a divisive and vacillating provisional government. Like the Highland Independent Company of Foot, they were known to march with pipers. Following their abortive attack on the British lines during the siege of Savannah on October 8, 1779, the Highlanders of Darien would face the redcoated Highlanders of the 42nd Regiment of Foot; the Black Watch, at the siege of Charleston in 1780, where they would be forced to surrender on May 9th with the rest of Charleston and it’s defenders, when despite their valiant efforts the British engineers were able to bring their heavy siege artillery within easy range of the surrounded city.

The War Between The States

In 1862 the descendants of those Highlanders would again fight to defend their homes, this time as mounted cavalry; Company H, (Lamar’s Rangers; James B. McIntosh, 1st Lieutenant) and Company K, (The MacIntosh Light Dragoons); 5th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Cavalry, Allen's Brigade, Kelly's Division, Wheeler's Cavalry Corps, Army of Tennessee, CSA. The 5th was very well equipped and military discipline was reported as excellent. Each trooper was well clothed with regulation uniform, and armed with new Sharps carbines, sabers and pistols, which were purchased for the regiment by donations of the citizens of Savannah. After fighting some minor skirmishes along the coast of Georgia and South Carolina, and arriving by train a day too late to take part in the Confederate victory at Olustee, Florida, from 1864 onward they were involved in some of the heaviest fighting of the war, taking part in the Battles of Atlanta. Following the burning of Atlanta Wheeler’s Cavalry fought valiant rear guard actions against Sherman’s entire combined force during their infamous “March to the Sea”, outnumbered twenty to one. The veteran troopers of Darien surrendered with the rest of the survivors of the Confederate Army of Tennessee on April 26, 1865 at Hillsboro, North Carolina. Sadly, while the men of Darien were off fighting for their country, in one of the first engagements by African-American troops, undefended, defenseless, and strategically irrelevant Darien was looted and burned to the ground by the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry under Colonel Robert Gould Shaw on June 11, 1863. The flames could be clearly seen from St. Simon’s Island, 15 miles away. Another descendent of John ‘Mohr’ MacIntosh was John McIntosh Kell, who was executive officer of the CSS Alabama throughout its brilliant career, and was aboard at its sinking at the hands of the USS Kearsarge off Cherbourg, France on June 19, 1864.

Despite being devastated several times in it’s history by wars and hurricanes, over 200 families in modern day Darien, Georgia still proudly trace their lineage back to those original one hundred and seventy-seven Scottish immigrants who came ashore in 1736.

 

  The Georgia Tartan

Introduced to the public for the first time in 1982 at the first International Gathering of the Scottish Clans ever held in the United States at the Stone Mountain Highland Games, the Georgia tartan commemorates the founding of the state of Georgia and combines elements in the design associated with its historic past. The pattern, or "sett," comes from the earliest known MacIntosh tartan. The green and black are from what once was the "government" tartan worn by the Highland Independent Company of Foot, and since has become world famous as the tartan worn by the Royal Highland Regiment, "The Black Watch”. Captain John ‘Mohr’ MacIntosh is remembered in the MacIntosh red. Peter McDonald, the great Scottish tartan weaver and tartan design expert who designed the Georgia tartan and wove it for the first time, said he selected the color blue for our beautiful Georgia sky, the red for our rich red Georgia clay, and the green for our beautiful forests. Our state's very history is woven into the fabric.

 

Certificate Number 96027 by the Council of the Scottish Tartans Society of Scotland and is described as follows: 72 green, 4 black, 4 green, 4 black, 6 green, 24 black, 20 azure, 40 red; October 1, 1996. Designated by the Georgia State Legislature as the official tartan of Georgia; Code Section 50-3-75; May 1, 1997.
