_____

Brian Wilson VIEW FULL DIARY

The removal of James II in 1688 by William of Orange resulted in the formation of the Jacobite movement with the aim of restoring the Stuarts. After several minor rebellions the most serious rebellion took place in 1745 under the command of “Bonnie Prince Charlie”. This talk concentrates on “The 45” and its impact on the NW of England and ends with the defeat of the Jacobites at the battle of Culloden.
