See Scotland Get Ready For Its Historic Vote

With mere days left before Scotland's historic vote on independence from the United Kingdom, supporters and opponents launched a final bid to convince their countrymen to follow their lead.

One day after thousands of independence supporters rallied in the streets of Glasgow, British Prime Minister David Cameron is traveling to Scotland on Monday in a last-minute effort to convince Scots of sticking with London.

If a majority of voters would choose to split, Scotland would become independent from the U.K. in 18 months. Polls indicate the race remains too close to call.
