The Battle of Glenshiel – 300 Years On!  June 10th 2019
 
June 10th 1719: Hanoverian Government forces under Lieutenant-General Wightman close in on a Jacobite army under the Marquis of Tullibardine in the mountainous terrain of the Western Highlands.  The two armies engage that afternoon in the valley of Glenshiel, in the conclusive battle of the Rising of 1719.
 
June 10th 2019:  300 years on to the very day, Michael Nevin, Chairman of the 1745 Association, will commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Glenshiel by recounting the events leading up to it, and the course of the battle itself, at a lunchtime talk at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.  The talk will start at 12:30 PM in Gallery No 1, drawing on the paintings there to describe key events that led up to Rising, before moving on to Galley No 4 (the Wolfson Gallery), concluding with a detailed appreciation of Peter Tillemans' contemporary masterpiece, The Battle of Glenshiel.
 
The talk is free and open to all.  Members of The 1745 Association are more than welcome to stay behind after the talk for a commemorative pub lunch and convivial conversation – although the price of lunch is not included in the free ticket!
 
Numbers are restricted for Health and Safety regulations, and the limited number of tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  They can be obtained at:
 

 

The ‘45 in 45 Minutes – 15 Myths and Misconceptions Challenged!
 
Michael's last SNPG talk, The ‘45 in 45 Minutes! 15 Myths and Misconceptions Challenged can be viewed on YouTube in three parts:
 
Part 1: The "Glorious Revolution" of 1688 (10 minutes 40 seconds)
 
“The truth of the matter is that the Coup of 1688 was neither glorious nor a revolution, but a squalid family squabble….."
 
 
Part 2: Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Rising of 1745 (19 minutes)
 
“Had the Jacobites continued their advance from Derby on to London, their chances of success must be rated as at least 50:50.....”
 
 
Part 3: Queen Clementina's Cavinet (8 minutes 20 seconds)
 
“For all her wealth, Clementina is not a free woman. She is not free to choose her own husband. She is an asset to be traded on the market of international politics, sold to the most promising bidder in a dynastic marriage…..”
 

 

 

Friday, April 12th 2019: Annual 1745 Association / NTS Lecture at the Culloden Visitor Centre. Details to follow in the next edition of The Jacobite.

St George's Gardens:
Saturday 21st April, 2018

This year we had fourteen people who came to pay their respects to those who fell during and after the Jacobite Risings and in particular the nine men of the Manchester Regiment and seven Scots who are buried in unmarked graves in the Gardens

.We began proceedings with a brief reminder of the progress of the Jacobite army to Derby and how, despite the level of support expected from English and Welsh Jacobites being not forthcoming, about 200 men from Lancashire joined the Prince and were formed into The Manchester Regiment under the command of Francis Towneley. As we know Carlisle fell to the Duke of Cumberland and the garrison was captured. Most of the men buried in St George’s Gardens were taken at Carlisle. Col Francis Towneley is buried in nearby Old St Pancras Church. Words of remembrance were spoken by Steve Lord of the 1745 Association and these were added to by Lester Hillman of Old St Pancras Church.
 

Floral tributes were placed on the plaque on behalf of the 1745 Association by Mr Stanley Morris, by Mr Charlie Beattie on behalf of The White Cockade Society and by Mr Mark Hayball on behalf of the Clan Chief's and the Clan Donald Society of the Highlands and Islands. Commenting Mark said "I am delighted to have been invited by the 1745 Association to be present on this important day and pay tribute to so many who lost their lives at Culloden on 6 April 1746. We will never forget them". The occasion was also marked by members of both the Royal Stuart Society and The Stewart Society.

 the close of the short commemoration we visited the nearby Foundling Museum to view William Hogarth’s painting “The March of the Guards to Finchley” which depicts (among other things!) a column of soldiers about to march north to meet the anticipated advance of the Jacobite army.
