Clifton Moor1

Here's an interesting little battle from the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion. Clifton Moor was a night battle fought at the start of the winter. The Jacobites under Lord George Murray decided to lure the British horse into attacking him in a village, then giving them a highland charge. Unfortunately for the Jacobites, the British didn't just up and run away.
