Thanks for the references, I've been playing with this stuff through Google
all afternoon, when I should have been doing other things.

The Celtic reference I cited earlier has surfaced enough today for me to
think there is something to the memory, and I did not remember it wrong.
There are several references to Highlanders in both the Revolutionary war,
and the War between the States.

Unfortunately the web is an unreliable resource for anything but empirical
knowledge and opinion.  If I nail down a citation that I feel is strong
enough to make the case, I'll share it with you.

In the meantime, the cited Celtic article makes most sense to me, because of
my experience.

I doubt a man who has to spend day after day bent over a mule drawn plow
would allow himself to become sun-burned to the extent that a whole class of
people gets called red-neck.

Fun stuff indeed, and I plan to withdraw this thread until I get a  firm
citation that supports my Civil War notion.
