In 1398, Scottish Prince of Orkney, Prince Henry Sinclair hired Carlo Zeno to help map Greenland. Their ship was blown off course and they landed in Newfoundland. They founded two colonies in Nova Scotia and explored the New World for a good 20 years. While in Westford, Massachusetts, Sir James Gunn died and a marker of a Scottish knight with a 39 inch long sword and a shield with the Clan Gunn insignia.

Aside from the Zeno Narrative which was the many account of their trip, this marker proves that the Scots were one of many in the America nearly 90 years before Columbus!As a result of the Westford Knight, Clan Gunn society has been one of the most prominent Scottish clans in America. And on June 9th, Sinclair Day of every year, the Scots celebrate the Scottish voyage. And in Austin, we're celebrating it too for the third annual Sinclair Day Picnic.
