November 3, 1810- Twenty-two people were killed and more than 40 others were injured when gun powder being stored in a labourers house exploded. Workers from the Ballincollig gunpowder works, in Ballincollig, Co. Cork, Ireland, were stealing the gunpowder. Before selling the gunpowder, it had to be dried by holding a lit candle over the powder. Apparently, one of the men who died in the blast had been seen at a local tavern, drinking heavily.

November 28, 1666 - Sir Thomas Dalyell's horse regiment intercepted a group of Covenanters who had marched to Edinburgh from the west of Scotland to protest against religious discrimination. Fifty protestors were killed in what is known as the battle of Rullion Green.

This battle was the culmination of the Pentland Rising which began on November 15, 1666 after troops were found beating an elderly man who had defaulted on a fine for not attending government-approved church services. At the height, about 3000 men were amassed during the rising, however, those numbers dwindled to 900 by November 28.

December 3, 1894 - On this day, Famous Scots novelist Robert Louis Stevenson (Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde) died of a stroke in Samoa at the age of forty-four.

Natives hacked a path up Mount Vaea to bury him, and his epitaph was his own poem, Requiem.

Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.


So loved by the Samoans, this poem was translated to a Samoan song of grief which is still sung today
