The Jacobite Rising of 1745 - 275th Anniversary Conference
Saturday 19 September 2020, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., The Prestoungrange Gothenburg, 227-229 High Street, Prestonpans, EH32 9BE
Helion and Company are proud to announce a special extra From Reason to Revolution Conference organised in conjunction with the Battle of Prestonpans (1745) Heritage Trust and generously sponsored by the British Commission for Military History and The Society for Army Historical Research. This conference will consider a variety of topics related to the Jacobite Rising of 1745, looking at both sides and also seeking to place the Rising within the context of wider European events.
Coverage stretches from the raising of the Jacobite clans through to the aftermath of Culloden, and beyond to the legacy and heritage of the Rising. Topics include the military road network, medical aspects, support for the Rising by the Bourbon powers, the invasion of England, and a case-study of Jacobite generalship.
Many of the speakers are published authors of works in the From Reason to Revolution series or are working towards some of our future titles. As well as trying to shed new light on old controversies, our speakers will also seek to cover some of the more unusual and overlooked aspects of the Rising, and it is hoped that the papers will provoke the usual interesting and lively discussions.
Hot and cold drinks will be available throughout the day, a buffet lunch will be provided, and we will be launching new publications on the day with special introductory offers and other discounts.
Tickets cost £30 per person and can be booked by clicking the link above.
