The story behind the lyrics:
1314, nine years after the execution of William Wallace, the Scottish laid siege uponStirling Castle and an agreement was made that if it had not been relieved by mid-summer the English would surrender the castle to the Scottish. The English could of course not ignore that challenge, and sent a formidable force north towards Stirling to break the siege and relieve the troops inside. In the end Robert the Bruce and theScottish defeated the English under Edward II's command with a force half the size and not nearly as well equipped of what the English had at their disposal.
