PostSubject: Jacobite Rising of 1745   Sat Jan 08, 2011 7:17 pm

The Jacobite rising of 1745, often referred to as the forty-five, was the attempt by Bonnie Prince Charlie to regain the British throne for the exiled House of Stuart. The rising occurred during the War of the Austrian Succession when most of the British army was on the European continent. Charles Edward Louis Philip Casimir Stuart, commonly known as Bonnie Prince Charlie or the Young Pretender, saw the opportunity and raised the standard at Glenfinnan in the Scottish Highlands, where he was supported by a gathering of Highland clansmen. The march south began with an initial victory at Prestonpans near Edinburgh. The Jacobite army, now in bold spirits, marched onwards to Carlisle, over the border in England[1]. But on reaching Derby, the Redcoats were recalled from the continent and the Jacobite army retreated north to Inverness where the last battle on British soil took place on a nearby moor at Culloden. The battle on Culloden Moor ended with the final defeat of the Jacobite cause, and with the Bonnie Prince fleeing to the heather with a price on his head. The wanderings of the Bonnie Prince in the north west Highlands and Islands of Scotland in the summer months of 1746, prior to finally sailing to permanent exile in France, have become an era of Scottish history which is steeped in romance.[2]
