The last battle of the the "Forty-Five" uprising, the Battle of Culloden was the climatic engagement between the Jacobite army of Charles Edward Stuart and the Hanoverian government forces of King George II. Meeting on Culloden Moor, just east of Inverness, the Jacobite army was soundly defeated by a government army led by the Duke of Cumberland. Following the victory at the Battle of Culloden, Cumberland and the government executed those captured in the fighting and began an oppressive occupation of the Highlands.
