The Battle of Prestonpans 21st September 1745
The Battle of Prestonpans was a battle that would immortalize the great Highland Charge - the Jacobite army under the command of Prince Charles Edward Stewart. The prince was declaring his Father King James VIII of Scotland. Lord George Murray led the Jacobites to Preston to fight against Sir John Cope. He was leading the government troops to fight for King George II. It was at the break of day light the Jacobite army loomed out of the morning mist at the government troops preparing cannons, hearing the chanting and yelling of the Jacobites running at them shooting with muskets and hand guns. The cannons opened fire BANG with grape shot over the Jacobites and past them the Scottish Army kept running throwing their muskets and hand guns to the wet muddy grass - 'Charge' they yelled.
