Painting - The Highland Charge of Drummossie Moor
The Battle of Culloden was the final clash between the Hanoverian King George II and the Jacobites. It was the last battle to be fought on mainland Britain. In 1745, the exiled Stewart Pretender, “Bonnie Prince Charlie”, raised an army of Jacobites – mainly Highlanders – who supported his claim to the throne of Great Britain. The Jacobites marched as far as Derby, but there was little support from the English for their cause. The army returned north to Scotland but were pursued by the Redcoat forces of King George II. The Jacobites were finally defeated at the Battle of Culloden, near Inverness in 1746. Bonnie Prince Charlie fled abroad and never tried to take the throne of Britain again. Painted by James N. Madison in 1965 this oil on canvas features characters based on people the artist knew. On loan from OCS Publishing Group.
