On 15 April, the government army celebrated Cumberland's twenty-fifth birthday by issuing two gallons of brandy to each regiment.
Murray proposed that they set off at dusk and march to Nairn ; he planned to have the right wing of the first line attack Cumberland's rear, while the Duke of Perth with the left wing would attack the government's front.
The Jacobite force, however, started out well after dark, partly due to concerns they would be spotted by ships of the Royal Navy then in the Moray Firth.
Murray led them across country with the intention of avoiding government outposts: Murray's one time aide-de-camp , James Chevalier de Johnstone later wrote, "this march across country in a dark night which did not allow us to follow any track [was] accompanied with confusion and disorder".
By the time the leading troop had reached Culraick, still 2 miles 3. After a heated council with other officers, Murray concluded that there was not enough time to mount a surprise attack and that the offensive should be aborted.
Sullivan went to inform Charles Edward Stuart of the change of plan, but missed him in the dark. Meanwhile, instead of retracing his path back, Murray led his men left, down the Inverness road.
In the darkness, while Murray led one-third of the Jacobite forces back to camp, the other two-thirds continued towards their original objective, unaware of the change in plan.
One account of that night even records that Perth's men made contact with government troops before realising the rest of the Jacobite force had turned home.
A few historians, such as Jeremy Black and Christopher Duffy , have suggested that if Perth had carried on the night attack might have remained viable, though most have disagreed, as perhaps only of the Jacobite force accompanied him.
Not long after the exhausted Jacobite forces had made it back to Culloden, an officer of Lochiel's regiment, who had been left behind after falling asleep in a wood, arrived with a report of advancing government troops.
Following the abortive night attack, the Jacobites formed up in substantially the same battle order as the previous day, with the Highland regiments forming the first line.
They faced north-east over common grazing land, with the Water of Nairn about 1 km to their right. The right wing, flanked by the Culwhiniac enclosure walls, was led by Murray.
Behind them the 'Low Country' regiments were drawn up in column, in accordance with French practice. During the morning snow and hail "started falling very thick" onto the already wet ground, later turning to rain, though the weather turned fair as the battle started.
Cumberland's army had pitched camp and were underway by 5 am, leaving the main Inverness road and marching across country.
By 10 am the Jacobites finally saw them approaching at a distance of around 4 km; at 3 km from the Jacobite position Cumberland gave the order to form line, and the army marched forward in full battle order.
As Cumberland's forces formed into line of battle, it became clear that their right flank was in an exposed position and Cumberland moved up additional cavalry and other units to reinforce it.
Murray also moved the Jacobite right slightly forwards: this "changement", as Sullivan called it, had the unintended result of skewing the Jacobite line and opening gaps, so Sullivan ordered Perth and Glenbucket 's regiments from the second line to the left of the front rank, and the Edinburgh Regiment to the centre.
While the Jacobite front rank now substantially outnumbered that of Cumberland, their reserve was further depleted, increasing their reliance on the first line attack.
At approximately 1 p. Finlayson's Jacobite batteries opened fire, possibly in response to Cumberland sending forward Lord Bury to within metres of the Jacobite lines to "ascertain the strength of their battery".
Campbell of Airds, in the rear, timed it at 9; Cumberland's aide-de-camp Yorke suggested only 2 or 3 minutes. The duration implies that the government artillery are unlikely to have fired more than thirty rounds at extreme range: statistical analysis concludes that this would have caused only Jacobite casualties at this stage, rather than the hundreds suggested by some accounts.
Shortly after 1 pm, Charles issued an order to advance, which Col. Harry Kerr of Graden first took to Perth's regiment, on the extreme left.
He then rode down the Jacobite line giving orders to each regiment in turn; Sir John MacDonald and Brigadier Stapleton were also sent forward to repeat the order.
As there was no need for careful aiming when using canister the rate of fire increased dramatically, and the Jacobites found themselves advancing into heavy fire.
On the Jacobite right, the Atholl Brigade, Lochiel's and the Appin Regiment left their start positions and charged towards Barrell's and Munro's regiments.
Within a few hundred yards, however, the centre regiments, Lady Mackintosh's and Lovat's, had begun to swerve rightwards, either trying to avoid canister fire or in order to follow the firmer ground along the road running diagonally across Drummossie Moor.
The five regiments became entangled as a single mass, converging on the government left. The confusion was worsened when the three largest regiments lost their commanding officers, who were all at the front of the advance: MacGillivray and MacBean of Lady Mackintosh's both went down; Inverallochie of Lovat's fell, and Lochiel had his ankles broken by canister within a few yards of the government lines.
The Jacobite left, by contrast, advanced much more slowly, hampered by boggy ground and by having several hundred yards further to cover.
According to the account of Andrew Henderson , Lord John Drummond walked across the front of the Jacobite lines to try and tempt the government infantry into firing early, but they maintained their discipline.
The three MacDonald regiments - Keppoch's, Clanranald's and Glengarry's - stalled before resorting to ineffectual long-range musket fire; they also lost senior officers, as Clanranald was wounded and Keppoch killed.
The smaller units on their right - Maclachlan's Regiment and Chisholm's and Monaltrie's battalions - advanced into an area swept by artillery fire, and suffered heavy losses before falling back.
The Jacobite right was particularly hard hit by a volley from the government regiments at nearly point blank range, but many of its men still reached the government lines and, for the first time, a battle was decided by a direct clash between charging Highlanders and formed infantry equipped with muskets and socket bayonets.
The brunt of the Jacobite impact, led by Lochiel's regiment, was taken by just two government regiments — Barrell's 4th Foot and Dejean's 37th Foot.
Barrell's lost 17 and suffered wounded, out of a total of officers and men. Dejean's lost 14 and had 68 wounded, with this unit's left wing taking a disproportionately higher number of casualties.
Barrell's regiment temporarily lost one of its two colours. Also sent forward to plug the gap was Bligh's 20th Foot , which took up position between Sempill's 25th and Dejean's 37th.
Huske's counter formed a five battalion strong horseshoe -shaped formation which trapped the Jacobite right wing on three sides.
Poor Barrell's regiment were sorely pressed by those desperadoes and outflanked. One stand of their colours was taken; Collonel Riches hand cutt off in their defence We marched up to the enemy, and our left, outflanking them, wheeled in upon them; the whole then gave them 5 or 6 fires with vast execution, while their front had nothing left to oppose us, but their pistolls and broadswords; and fire from their center and rear, as, by this time, they were 20 or 30 deep was vastly more fatal to themselves, than us.
With the Jacobite left under Perth failing to advance further, Cumberland ordered two troops of Cobham's 10th Dragoons to ride them down.
The boggy ground, however, impeded the cavalry and they turned to engage the Irish Picquets whom Sullivan and Lord John Drummond had brought up in an attempt to stabilise the deteriorating Jacobite left flank.
Cumberland later wrote: "They came running on in their wild manner, and upon the right where I had place myself, imagining the greatest push would be there, they came down there several times within a hundred yards of our men, firing their pistols and brandishing their swords, but the Royal Scots and Pulteneys hardly took their fire-locks from their shoulders, so that after those faint attempts they made off; and the little squadrons on our right were sent to pursue them".
Immediately the half battalion of Highland militia, commanded by Captain Colin Campbell of Ballimore, which had stood inside the enclosure ambushed them.
In the encounter Campbell of Ballimore was killed along with five of his men. The Irish Picquets under Stapleton bravely covered the Highlanders' retreat from the battlefield, preventing the fleeing Jacobites from suffering heavy casualties: this action cost half of the casualties they suffered in the battle.
The stand by the French regulars gave Charles and other senior officers time to escape. Charles seems to have been rallying Perth's and Glenbucket's regiments when Sullivan rode up to Captain Shea, commander of his bodyguard: "Yu see all is going to pot.
From this point on the fleeing Jacobite forces were split into several groups: the Lowland regiments retired in order southwards, making their way to Ruthven Barracks , while the remains of the Jacobite right wing also retired to the south.
The MacDonald and other Highland left wing regiments however were cut off by the government cavalry, and forced to retreat down the road to Inverness.
The result was that they were a clear target for government dragoons: Major-general Humphrey Bland led the pursuit of the fleeing Highlanders, giving " Quarter to None but about Fifty French Officers and Soldiers".
Jacobite casualties are estimated at 1,—2, killed or wounded, with many of these occurring in the pursuit after the battle.
Added to the official list of those apprehended were of the Earl of Cromartie's men, captured after a brief engagement the day before near Littleferry.
In striking contrast to the Jacobite losses, the government losses were reported as 50 dead and wounded. Of the men of Barrell's 4th Foot, 17 were killed and were wounded.
However, a large proportion of those recorded as wounded are likely to have died of their wounds: only 29 men out of the wounded from Barrell's 4th Foot later survived to claim pensions, while all six of the artillerymen recorded as wounded died.
Several senior Jacobite commanding officers were casualties including Keppoch , Viscount Strathallan , commissary-general Lachlan Maclachlan and Walter Stapleton, who died of wounds shortly after the battle.
Others, including Kilmarnock , were captured. Sir Robert Rich, 5th Baronet , whom was a lieutenant-colonel and the senior officer commanding Barrell's 4th Foot, was badly wounded, losing his left hand and receiving several wounds to his head, and a number of captains and lieutenants had also been wounded.
As the first of the fleeing Highlanders approached Inverness they were met by the 2nd battalion of Lovat's regiment, led by the Master of Lovat.
It has been suggested that Lovat shrewdly switched sides and turned upon the retreating Jacobites, an act that would explain his remarkable rise in fortune in the years that followed.
Following the battle, the Jacobites' Lowland regiments headed south, towards Corrybrough and made their way to Ruthven Barracks, while their Highland units made their way north, towards Inverness and on through to Fort Augustus.
There they were joined by Barisdale's battalion of Glengarry's regiment and a small battalion of MacGregors. At this point, continuing Jacobite resistance remained potentially viable in terms of manpower: at least a third of the army had either missed or slept through Culloden, which along with survivors from the battle gave a potential force of men.
Similar orders must have been received by the Highland units at Fort Augustus, and by 18 April the majority of the Jacobite army was disbanded.
Officers and men of the units in French service made for Inverness, where they surrendered as prisoners of war on 19 April. Most of the rest of the army broke up, with men heading for home or attempting to escape abroad,  although the Appin Regiment amongst others was still in arms as late as July.
Many senior Jacobites made their way to Loch nan Uamh , where Charles Edward Stuart had first landed at the outset of the campaign in Here on 30 April they were met by two French frigates — the Mars and Bellone.
Two days later the French ships were spotted and attacked by three smaller Royal Navy sloops — the Greyhound , Baltimore , and Terror.
With visible proof that the French had not deserted them, a group of Jacobite leaders attempted to prolong the campaign. The plan was that there they would be joined by what remained of Keppoch's men and Macpherson of Cluny's regiment, which had not taken part in the battle at Culloden.
However, things did not go as planned; after about a month of relative inactivity, Cumberland moved his army into the Highlands and on 17 May three battalions of regulars and eight Highland companies reoccupied Fort Augustus.
The same day, the Macphersons surrendered. On the day of the planned rendezvous, Clanranald never appeared and Lochgarry and Barisdale only showed up with about combined, most of whom immediately dispersed in search of food: Lochiel, who commanded possibly the strongest Jacobite regiment at Culloden, was only able to muster men.
The group dispersed, and the following week the Government launched punitive expeditions into the Highlands which continued throughout the summer.
Following his flight from the battle, Charles Edward Stuart made his way towards the Hebrides , accompanied by a small group of supporters.
By 20 April, Charles had reached Arisaig on the west coast of Scotland. After spending a few days with his close associates, he sailed for the island of Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides.
From there he travelled to Scalpay , off the east coast of Harris , and from there made his way to Stornoway. Finally, on 19 September, Charles reached Borrodale on Loch nan Uamh in Arisaig , where his party boarded two small French ships, which ferried them to France.
The morning following the Battle of Culloden, Cumberland issued a written order reminding his men that "the public orders of the rebels yesterday was to give us no quarter".
In the days and weeks that followed, versions of the alleged orders were published in the Newcastle Journal and the Gentleman's Journal.
Today only one copy of the alleged order to "give no quarter" exists. In any event, Cumberland's order was not carried out for two days, after which contemporary accounts report then that for the next two days the moor was searched and all those wounded were put to death.
On the other hand, the orders issued by Lord George Murray for the conduct of the aborted night attack in the early hours of 16 April suggest that it would have been every bit as merciless.
The instructions were to use only swords, dirks and bayonets, to overturn tents, and subsequently to locate "a swelling or bulge in the fallen tent, there to strike and push vigorously".
While in Inverness, Cumberland emptied the jails that were full of people imprisoned by Jacobite supporters, replacing them with Jacobites themselves.
In total, common men were executed, one third of them being deserters from the British Army. Although most of those who did stand trial were sentenced to death, almost all of these had their sentences commuted to penal transportation to the British colonies for life by the Traitors Transported Act 20 Geo.
II, c. Even so, prisoners were actually released under the Act of Indemnity which was passed in June Another obtained their freedom by being exchanged for prisoners of war who were held by France.
Of the total 3, prisoners recorded, nothing is known of the fate of Following up on the military success won by their forces, the British Government enacted laws further to integrate Scotland — specifically the Scottish Highlands — with the rest of Britain.
Members of the Episcopal clergy were required to give oaths of allegiance to the reigning Hanoverian dynasty. Anti-clothing measures were taken against the highland dress by an Act of Parliament in The result was that the wearing of tartan was banned except as a uniform for officers and soldiers in the British Army and later landed men and their sons.
Today, a visitor centre is located near the site of the battle. This centre was first opened in December , with the intention of preserving the battlefield in a condition similar to how it was on 16 April Since , the site of the battle has undergone topographic , geophysical , and metal detector surveys in addition to archaeological excavations.
Interesting finds have been made in the areas where the fiercest fighting occurred on the government left wing, particularly where Barrell's and Dejean's regiments stood.
Finds of musket balls appear to mirror the lines of men who stood and fought. Some balls appear to have been dropped without being fired, some missed their targets, and others are distorted from hitting human bodies.
In some cases it may be possible to identify whether the Jacobites or government soldiers fired certain rounds, because the Jacobite forces are known to have used a large quantity of French muskets which fired a slightly smaller calibre shot than that of the British Army's Brown Bess.
Analysis of the finds confirms that the Jacobites used muskets in greater numbers than has traditionally been thought. Not far from where the hand-to-hand fighting took place, fragments of mortar shells have been found.
The recent discovery of a silver Thaler , from the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin , may however lead archaeologists to these graves.
Sie zählte noch etwa 5. Zu ihr gehörten überwiegend Highlander. Cumberlands Regierungsarmee umfasste 8.
Cumberland war zwar kein begnadeter Stratege, erwies sich jedoch als ein ausgezeichneter Organisator und hatte zudem im Österreichischen Erbfolgekrieg gegen die Franzosen einige Erfahrung gesammelt.
So war er auch mit der Kampfweise der Highlander vertraut, da zu seiner Armee in Flandern auch schottische Einheiten wie das berühmte Black Watch -Regiment gehört hatten.
Er hatte bei der Vorbereitung des entscheidenden Gefechts nichts dem Zufall überlassen. Insbesondere waren seine Infanteristen auf die Abwehr des gefürchteten Sturmangriffs der Highlander gedrillt worden und hatten gelernt, mit dem Bajonett nicht den ihnen gegenüberstehenden Mann, sondern den rechts davon anzugreifen und so die Deckung durch den traditionellen Schild zu umgehen.
Angesichts der ungünstigen Bedingungen schlug Murray für die Nacht vor dem April einen Nachtangriff auf die Regierungstruppen vor.
Da es sehr lange dauerte, bis die auf der Suche nach Nahrung zerstreute Armee versammelt war, wurde das Lager der Feinde nicht rechtzeitig gefunden und in den frühen Morgenstunden brach man das Vorhaben ab.
Murray und einige andere Offiziere forderten angesichts ihrer übermüdeten Soldaten einen Rückzug in weniger zugängliches Gelände, wurden aber überstimmt.
Charles beschloss, Cumberland auf der flachen Ebene des Culloden Muir zu erwarten. Cumberland postierte seine Armee in drei Linien, die jeweils vier Mann tief waren.
Die Artillerie stand in den Lücken zwischen den Regimentern, die Kavallerie an den Flügeln, um den Jakobiten in die Flanken fallen zu können.
Zu Beginn der Schlacht eröffneten die weit überlegenen Geschütze Cumberlands ein destruktives Feuer auf die Linien der Jakobiten, das deren schwächere Artillerie nicht effektiv erwidern konnte.
Nur ein Teil der jakobitischen Truppen beteiligte sich an dieser Attacke. Trotz schwerer Verluste durch das Artilleriefeuer und die Musketensalven der Regierungstruppen konnten die Highlander die erste Linie bei zwei Regimentern durchbrechen.
Die zweite Linie hielt jedoch. Nach Berichten von Zeitzeugen hat die Schlacht insgesamt nur etwa 25 Minuten gedauert.
Einem Teil der hannoverschen Kavallerie gelang es, den rechten Flügel der Jakobiten zu umgehen.
Die Verluste der Besiegten waren enorm: Rund 1. Stai commentando usando il tuo account Facebook. Notificami nuovi commenti via e-mail.

You can help. Summary Description Battle of Culloden map This map shows the skewing of the Jacobite front line as the right wing moved forward, but the left wing stayed anchored to the enclosure wall.
The result was the right wing was closer to the enemy than the left wing and that gaps appeared in the line as it stretched.
To compensate, Sullivan brought up units from the rear to fill in gaps. Cumberland moved over several units to protect his right flank.
Hawley moved his cavalry through the enclosure and on to the other side. The Jacobites noticed this and sent several units down to keep an eye on them.
The Highland battalion moved into the enclosure and took up position just behind the wall, just in front of the Jacobites' right flank.

Quando re James II e VII era al potere, credeva nel diritto divino del re e di conseguenza il Governo si vide privato di alcuni poteri.
Se la ragione fosse stata solo questa sarebbe stato facile spiegare chi era dalla parte dei giacobiti. Dopo quelle religiose ci sono le motivazioni politiche.
Alcuni Clan fecero il doppio gioco e piazzarono uomini in entrambe le parti del conflitto: un figlio dalla parte dei giacobiti, uno con le truppe governative.
La religione giocava ancora una parte importante e nel molti Episcopaliani, che credevano nel diritto divino del re, si unirono alla causa per combattere a sostegno degli Stuart che erano considerati i legittimi eredi al trono e che, si sperava, avrebbero segnato la fine delle discriminazioni contro i cattolici.
Il giacobita medio non esisteva. Essi venivano da tutti i ceti sociali e da tutta la Gran Bretagna.
