TJR: The Jacobites Rising[M]. 43rd Highlander pg. 78
« on: January 08, 2013, 09:27:30 pm »


Spoiler
The Jacobite Risings were a series of uprisings, rebellions, and wars in Great Britain and Ireland occurring between 1688 and 1746. The uprisings were aimed at returning James VII of Scotland and II of England, and later his descendants of the House of Stuart, to the throne after he was deposed by Parliament during the Glorious Revolution. The series of conflicts takes its name from Jacobitism, from Jacobus, the Latin form of James.

The major Jacobite Risings were called the Jacobite Rebellions by the ruling governments. The "First Jacobite Rebellion" and "Second Jacobite Rebellion" were known respectively as "The Fifteen" and "The Forty-Five", after the years in which they occurred (1715 and 1745).

Although each Jacobite Rising had unique features, they were part of a larger series of military campaigns by Jacobites attempting to restore the Stuart kings to the thrones of Scotland and England (and after 1707, Great Britain). James was deposed in 1688 and the thrones were claimed by his daughter Mary II jointly with her husband, the Dutch-born William of Orange.

After the House of Hanover succeeded to the British throne in 1714, the risings continued, and intensified. They continued until the last Jacobite Rebellion ("the Forty-Five"), led by Charles Edward Stuart (the Young Pretender), who was soundly defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. This ended any realistic hope of a Stuart restoration.

"Wall Gun"
Edit- Added to OP.

General Description - Credit to Wikipedia
Wall guns were large caliber smooth-bore muskets that were used in the 16th through 18th centuries by defending forces to break the advance of enemy troops. They were too heavy to be fired from the shoulder and so were usually rested on window ledges or low walls, hence the name.[1] They were also known as Hackbuts, a name originally given to early medieval hand cannon.[2] Many were fitted with a barrel hook to absorb shock. Some of these weapons had multiple barrels which enabled volleys to be fired much faster than a normal single shot wall gun.
Wall Guns were used in India as early as the 17th century[3] and there is a Burmese source from the late 15th century mentioning the use of "cannon and muskets" by the defenders of the besieged town of Prome.[4] There are examples of later wall guns fitted with bipods.[5]
A wall gun's barrel could be over 54 inches (140 cm) in length with a bore of at least 1 inch (2.5 cm). This made them more accurate than the standard flintlock or matchlock musket. George Washington acquired several wall guns during the American War of Independence; tests showed that they were capable of hitting a sheet of common writing paper at 600 yards (550 m). Wall guns were part of the standard equipment of some artillery pieces at that time.[6]

Been looking forward to a mod like this for some time. If you don't mind me asking, which of the wars will this be set in? Good luck, by the way. ;D

Thanks a lot, well it was originally going to be based around the end of the war , 1746 - Battle of Culloden, but now to add more nations such as the dutch we have decided that the mod is going to be more focused on all Jacobitism in general, including the Williamite wars.

Yes Koning-Stadthouder, Willem the Third was Stadtholder of the Republic of the Seven United Provinces(not counting Drenthe) and King of England and Scotland. The Netherlands didn't become a monarchy untill Napoleon made it one(Kingdom of Holland) and King Willem the first became king of The United Kingdom of The Netherlands.. and there was no 'Orange Above' yet, that only developed in the mid-20th century, even the Korean wars the shout was still 'Voor Juliana'(Queen at the given time), I actually did my research and have this information from the Rijksmuseum(Imperial Museum) in Amsterdam
