In 1746, the British throne was occupied by the Hanoverian George II. James II, the last Stuart king, had been ousted at the Battle of the Boyne, and James' grandson, Bonnie Prince Charlie, hoped to restore his family to the throne. Leading his army from Scotland into England, Charlie was forced to turn back when the Redcoats of the English Army chased him from the outskirts of London. The conflict came to a head on Culloden Moor, but the exhausted and confused Jacobites were no match for the flintlock muskets or cannon fire of the Redcoats. The Battle of Culloden was Britain's last land battle and arguably the bloodiest in Scottish history, having a long-lasting impact on Scottish culture, religion, and the clans' relationship with the English government. Dan Snow highlights logistical difficulties of the Jacobite army, including a night march across the moors sans night-vision goggles, maps, or a compass.moreless
