This piece is a representation of the memorial cairn at Culloden Battlefield, Invernesshire, that was erected by Duncan Forbes of Culloden in 1881, in memory of the fallen Jacobites. The inscription on the 20 feet high cairn reads :
'The Battle of Culloden was fought on this moor 16th April, 1746. The graves of the Gallant Highlanders who fought for Scotland and Prince Charlie are marked by the names of their clans'.
The Battle of Culloden took place on 16 April 1746 between the Jacobite supporters of “Bonnie Prince Charlie” and the army of King George II, led by the Duke of Cumberland. It was the final battle of a civil war fought over religious and political beliefs which divided both clan and country.
The Jacobites by this time were outnumbered, poorly equipped and malnourished. They had marched all the previous night on an abortive foray to attack the Government army at their camp at Nairn so they were tired. In addition, the battlefield suited Cumberland's cavalry and canon and was wholly unsuitable for the Jacobites' most effective tactic - the feared “Highland charge”. The Jacobites were routed in less than an hour.
