Picture this: It’s a cold, wet dawn on April 16th 1746. You’re one of 5,500 men who are lined up on Culloden Moor as part of the Jacobite forces. Your army is led by Charles Edward Stuart. You’re about to charge well-fed, well-trained soldiers, loyal to King George II and led by his son, William Augustus, the Duke of Cumberland. The outcome of this battle will impact not only Scotland, but the rest of Britain. And, in time, the whole of the world. How did we get here? Let’s find out...
