A rare broadside. $850. * This broadside relates to an episode in the suppression of Scottish Covenanters, Presbyterians who denied the authority of the Church of Scotland, during the Restoration. Outlawed in 1662 by refusing to accept the authority of the Church of Scotland, they persisted as a clandestine sect. Oppressive measures led to an outbreak of armed rebellion in 1666 near Edinburgh. There, a small force of poorly armed Covenanters was defeated at the Battle of Rullion Green in the Pentland Hills by a large force of Highland Soldiers. Also known as the Pentland Rising, it was a vicious battle notable for the atrocities committed by the Highland soldiers. No print copies located on OCLC. ESTC locates 2 copies, both in Scotland.
