Jacobite 'On This day' posts

Over the past few weeks the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745-46 has cropped up in a few posts on this blog. Everyone knows about Bonnie Prince Charlie and his final defeat on Drummossie Moor but what is less well known is a series of events in the Highlands which took place between the Jacobites occupying Inverness in February 1746 and the Battle of Culloden six weeks later.

Over the next six weeks we will be running a special series of Jacobite 'On This day' posts in which we will go into some detail about these events. They are usually given little more than a passing mention in most history books but all of them in some way large or small, played a part in the final outcome at Culloden.
