The story of the battle of Culloden on April, 1746, this is the story of ordinary men and women involved in the Rebellion, who were described on the gaol registers and regimental rosters of the time as ‘Common Men'. Culloden recalls them by name and action, presenting the battle as it was for them, describing their life as fugitives in the glens or as prisoners in the gaols and hulks, their transportation to the Virginias or their deaths on the gallows at Kennington Common. Far from being one-sided, this book shows the humanity on both sides of the battle lines. (pbk)
