The First Marquis of Montrose

James Graham, Marquis of Montrose, was a brilliant General, who fought with great skill on behalf of King Charles I during the period of the ‘Great Civil War’, 1642-1660. His objective was to engage the Covenanting army in Scotland and thus reduce their support of the parliamentary cause in England and Ireland. During his campaign of 1644/45 his small army of Irish regulars and Highlanders crossed and re-crossed the Scottish Highlands, whilst battling against the elements and superior forces.
