The Second War of Scottish Independence
The Scottish War of Independence was the second of two attempts in the 1300s for the Scottish to gain independence from England. Although unsuccessful, it put the English in a reevaluating state concerning their own military strategies, strengths, and Scotland itself. It also put a state of unrest among both the English people and the Scottish people. The English people were at unrest because of the closeness of losing a colony; the Scottish people were at unrest because of the closeness of gaining independence from the multi-century reign of England over Scotland.
