Clans and Revolution: Jacobite Uprising in Scotland
The year is 1716, the first Jacobite Rising to put a Catholic Stuart back on the throne was a failure and James Stuart fled to his allies in Italy. Over two decades pass and James is still living in Italy, his son Charles Edward Stuart in France hoping to gain allies for future endeavors to reclaim the throne. Despite past failures and the passage of time there are still many within Scotland who would like to see a Stuart as King once again. The Year is now 1745 and your clans are looking to you to lead them in the war ahead. Bonnie Prince Charlie “The Young Pretender” is preparing to sail to Scotland to secure men who will follow him into an uprising. Outnumbered and outgunned can the delegates of this committee lead your clans and your country to victory? … or are you doomed to fall at the hands of the British.
