(Hope everyone enjoyed the anniversary of Stirling Bridge yesterday)

Somebody has pointed out that our Wars of Independence were about the retention of Independence; not the achievement of it, and that as such they were not proper wars if independence.

I can see his point, but how would they be renamed?

Apparently it is Stuart McHardy in "Scotland's Future History". I'll need to buy his book and see if he suggests anything.
