OOPS!!!
That would be 1306


March 25, 1306 - Robert the Bruce was crowned King of Scotland at Scone on this day in 1306. After the controversial death of one of his main rivals - who was murdered on a church altar - Bruce was made king but still had to contend with the power of English monarch Edward I ("Hammer of the Scots"). Bruce eventually defeated Edward's son at the battle of Bannockburn.

Scots Wha Hae

April 7, 1868 - Father of Canadian confederation, Thomas D'Arcy McGee became Canada's first and only politician to be assassinated. McGee was born in Carlingford, Ireland in 1825. He first arrived in North America where he settled in the U.S. While there, he founded and edited the Irish-American publications, the New York Nation and the American Celt. In 1857, he emigrated to Canada and began his political career in 1858.

The alleged assassin, Patrick Whelan was the last to be publicly hanged in Canada.

April 8, 1820 - Death of Thomas Douglas, 5th Earl of Selkirk (Lord Selkirk).

Selkirk became interested in the plight of the Scottish crofters and in 1803 established a colony in Prince Edward Island, and a second colony at Baldoon, near Lake St. Clair in Upper Canada. Selkirk became interested in creating a colony in the Red River Valley. He acquired a controlling interest in the Hudson's Bay Company and in 1811, received a grant of 116,000 square miles in that region for the purpose of colonization. Here, he created the Red River Colony, also known as the Selkirk Settlement.
