Artist's Description

From the People of the USA to the People of Scotland

The Scottish American Memorial in West Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh, Scotland was presented as a tribute from men and women of Scottish blood and sympathy in the USA to Scotland.

The bronze figure represents The Call, and is signed and dated by the artist (R Tait MacKenzie), with stag’s head symbol, to rear. The relief depicts men from all walks of life joining the forces, marching from left to right, with a pipe band to right.

The inscription reads:
If it be life that waits I shall live forever unconquered; if death I shall die at last strong in my pride and free.

The inscription on the base of the monument reads as follows:
