Historical Background

When Cumberland’s line of battle marched forward on the 16th, Charles army was not nearly ready and far weaker than it should have been. The Jacobite guns opened the battle, but were no match for the Government artillery. Charles had refused to order any Jacobite units to occupy the Culchunaig enclosure, which allowed Bland to maneuver his force around the Jacobite right flank. Murray quickly attempted to bring forward units and consolidate his line to face the Government units that had made the flanking movement. Bland, although in position to attack perhaps because of
the stream that needed to be crossed, or knowledge that the Jacobite charge had already failed and were already in retreat, hesitated.

The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. The rest is history?
