Transcript of William Wallace
He yearned for the independance of Scotland.
He was of the Christian faith. V. Two Visuals This is a depiction of William Wallce leading the Scottish to victory against the English in the Battle of Cressingham, or also known as the Battle of Stirling, with 300 cavalry, 10,000 infantry against 1,000 to 3,000 cavalry, 15,000-50,000 infantry. This is yet another picture of William Wallace where he is drawn in a heroic manner, which is emphasized by the sword. He is potrayed as though he has just conquered land or won a battle against the English. VI. Quotes by William Wallce Quotes about William Wallace "This is the truth I tell you:
of all things freedom’s most fine.
Never submit to live, my son,
in the bonds of slavery entwined." -- William Wallce in Scotichronicon by Walter Bower. "We come here with no peaceful intent, but ready for battle, determined to avenge our wrongs and set our country free." -- Stated before the Battle or Stirling as said in the History of Scotland (1841) by Patrick Fraser Tytler. "Wallace had behind him the spirit of a race as stern and as resolute as any bred among men. He added military gifts of a high order. Out of an unorganized mass of valiant fighting men he forged, in spite of cruel poverty and primitive administration, a stubborn, indomitable army, ready to fight at any odds and mock defeat." --Sir Winston Churchill. 1. 2.

William Wallace is significant because he fought for the independance of the Scottish people. He inspired and motivated his people to push on for a dream that seemed absurdly unrealistic at the time. In the end, his movements and rebellions left long lasting effects and changes on Scotland.
