On December 4th 1745, a six and a half thousand strong force of Jacobites led by `Bonnie Prince Charlie'
marched into Derby on their way south to claim the English throne.  Two days later, they had turned tail
and were retracing their steps northward, pursued at a distance by English troops.  Four months later the
Jacobite Rebellion, as it came to be known, was over.  The highland army made it back to Scotland, only
to be completely routed by the Duke of Cumberland's troops in the savage battle of Culloden Moor.
