Worcester (1651)

Described by Cromwell as his “crowning mercy”, the Battle of Worcester (1651) saw the total military annihilation of the Royalist cause and marked the end of the Civil War. Despite strong leadership from Charles II, the Parliamentary force proved too strong and ultimately surrounded and stormed the city.

Falkirk (1298)

In Spring 1297 William Wallace led a rebellion against English rule and, later that year, achieved a significant victory at Stirling Bridge after which he was appointed Guardian of Scotland. An English army under Edward I marched north to deal with this uprising and at the Battle of Falkirk (1298) decisively defeated the Scots.
