An ancient noble family of Scotland. The earls of Douglas, the earls of Angus, and the earls of Morton belonged to this family. Sir James Douglas, surnamed “The Good,” was the founder of their fame and grandeur. He commanded the left wing at Bannockburn in 1314, and was killed by the Saracens in Spain about 1330, in a pilgrimage to Palestine. James the second, earl of Douglas, was a famous warrior, and was killed at the battle of Otterburn in 1388. Archibald the Grim, third earl, fought for the French at Poitiers, and died about 1400. He was succeeded by his son Archibald, fourth earl, who displayed great courage at the battle of Shrewsbury (1403), where he fought against Henry IV., and rendered important services to Charles VII. of France, who rewarded him with the duchy of Touraine. He was killed at the battle of Verneuil, in France, in 1424.

The hippies were here many years ago, someone suggested this name to my father saying it would bring him good luck. I think people like it because it reminds them of Douglas Adams' book.
[ Stoneman Douglas ] is Stoneman Douglas ; it was like hearing that someone invaded your home, i lived there in high school.
The fact is that the families and the student survivors from Stoneman Douglas have spent the past almost nine months forcing this issue into the center of the political debate, that's why you've seen so many ads. That's why you've seen marches not just in Washington but all around the country. And that's why so many of my soon-to-be former colleagues were defeated because, for years, they thought that they could ignore arguments from families and gun safety advocates and sit back and comfortable receive gun company money, and think they would be protected.
That's the only thing that's keeping us Douglas students alive right now: the distraction of fighting for our rights and advocating for our lives.
We still have a ways to go, douglas C-47's probably going to take a million dollars -- a million and a half dollars -- to totally get this airplane rebuilt from the ground up so Douglas C-47 can last for 75 or 100 more years.
