The military forces and the public revenue of Scotland, 1660-1668
Gray W. B.
Historians of the seventeenth century have dealt with the most striking aspect of the national life of Scotland to the almost total exclusion of all others. "The Grown and the Kirk", "Scotland a^d the Covenanters", "politics and Religion" and similar titles illustrate the point of view from which this period has been regarded. The struggle between Kirk and Crown v;as one of the most vital in our history; but even the most complete examination of its origin, progress and effects, cannot give an adequate account of every feature of the national life. In the following pages attention has been directed to two branches of government which "come home to men’s business and bosoms" in every age and country - the organisation of the military forces of the state and the collection and expenditure of the public revenue.1.
