Title: Battle of Falkirk Muir, 17 Jan 1746
Setting: With the Jacobite army besieging Stirling Castle, the English relief army under General Hawley is attacked by the Jacobites late in the afternoon.  Fought in failing light and heavy snow, Hawley's left wing was routed but his right held firm and for a while both sides believed themselves to have been defeated. As a result of this confusion, the Jacobites failed to follow up their victory, leading to bitter disputes over responsibility for failure and allowing the government troops to regroup in Edinburgh. Hawley was replaced as commander by General Cumberland and when he resumed the advance on 30 January, the Jacobites abandoned Stirling and withdrew to Inverness. The rebellion later ended at the Battle of Culloden in April, 1746.  [From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Falkirk_Muir ]
