Talking about one of the Civil War's most successful but least-known generals
The rise and fall of James Graham, the first Marquis of Montrose, one of the Civil War’s least-known but most successful generals, is the focus of a special study day at the National Civil War Centre on November 30.
Organised by the first Marquis of Montrose Society, the day will explain how James Graham came to control all of Scotland for the King after eight battles in just 11 months during 1644 and 1645.
It will also look at his sudden defeat, exile, the attempt to conquer Scotland for Charles II, capture and execution.
