August 16, 1766 - Carolina Oliphant, Lady Nairne was born in Gask, Perthshire. A poet, Oliphant added her words to old folk tunes. Her parents were staunch Jacobite supporters and many of her works, including "Charlie is my Darling", reflect her family's sympathies. Were it not for Carolina, many Scots folk tunes would have been forgotten.

Land of the Leal - words by Carolina Oliphant, performed by Silly Wizard with quite an entertaining intro.

The tune used in that performance is "Hey Tuttie Tatie", which is the same tune Burns wrote "Scots What Hae" to.

October 8, 1871 - A fire in Chicago, Illinois ("The Great Chicago Fire") destroyed approximately 17,500 buildings, killed more than 300 people and left in excess of 100,000 homeless. Legend has it that the fire was started when a cow, owned by Mrs. O’Leary, kicked over a lantern but in truth, the fire actually started in the barn of a labourer named Patrick O’Leary. The fire raged for about three days levelling a large part of the city.
