Battle of Killiecrankie 1689: The Last Act of the Killing Times In the 50 years of Scottish history dominated by the Jacobite Risings, the last battle, Culloden in 1746, is deservedly remembered as a national tragedy, but the first battle on the braes of Killiecrankie was unquestionably the most dramatic. Killiecrankie saw the first, and most successful, Highland Charge, as the clansmen broke the line of the Government's redcoats in the twinkling of an eye, and the outnumbered Jacobites achieved a stunning victory. The Highlanders, however, suffered debilitating losses of almost one third of their strength, and their leader, John Graham, the Viscount of Dundee, was killed. $43.00 USD
