This Jacobites site gives sources of information in relation to the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745. It is not intended to convey any opinion as to the political history of the '45 Jacobite Rebellion, there are plenty of sites already dealing with that aspect of Jacobite history.
The object is to show, through actual documents, text and pictures what the leading Jacobites of the Jacobite Rebellion 1745 were really like. The descriptions of the principal characters including Bonnie Prince Charlie, lists of prisoners captured after the battle of Culloden, summaries of evidence from witnesses at the trials of leading Jacobite's and named Hanoverian government spies make interesting reading. Use the SEARCH field at the top of every page to find names within the site.
