National Tartan Day is a US Observance On April 6 Each Year.
It commemorates the Scottish Declaration of Independence,
from which the American Declaration of Independence was modelled
on. It also recognizes achievements of Americans of Scottish descent.
The Scottish Declaration of Independence was signed on April 6, 1320.
The American Declaration of Independence was, in fact, modeled
on this particular document. Almost half of the signers of the American Declaration of Independencewere of Scottish descent.
The US Senate Resolution on National Tartan Day was passed on
March 20, 1998. From that point onward, National Tartan Day was
designated as April 6 every year. A day for all Americans, particularly
those of Scottish descent to celebrate their Scottish Heritage.
