Culloden Battlefield

P8310892.JPG

This sign marks the historic battlefield in Scotland where countless Scottish and English soldiers lost their lives and the Jacobite Rebellion (aka “the Uprising” or just “the ’45”) came to a final and bloody end. Like most other battlefields I’ve visited (which is always decades or even centuries after the fighting has ended), it’s hard for me to imagine such a quiet peaceful and beautiful place being the setting for so much violence and carnage.
