Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (A)
Alexander, Abraham

(1717-86). He was an Ulster-Scot. He chaired a meeting 5/19/75 in Charlotte NC regarding the British treatment of Patriots after the Boston Tea Party. The Mecklenburg Declaration was the result. It dissolved the political bonds connecting them with Britain and all 'associations with that nation who have want only trampled on our rights and liberties and inhumanely shed the innocent blood of American Patriots at Lexington'. The Highlanders declared themselves free and independent. This was the second declaration by Scots in America, the first being at Fincastle County VA as early as January, 1775.
