Culloden Battlefield lies roughly 5 miles outside of Inverness, Scotland. It marks the place were countless men lost their lives & where the Jacobite Uprising effectively came to an end in April 16, 1746.
Well of the Dead: the fighting was savage in this part of the field. The battlefield was boggy, cold & miserable. Soldiers climbed over the fallen bodies of comrades & enemies to engage in battle.
These memorial markers were erected many years after the battle in 1881 by the land owner Duncan Forbes. Today, it is a field like any other, peaceful & lush. Locals were walking their dogs or taking a jog.
We came to pay our respects to those that lost their lives & remember. I couldn't help but say a little prayer for the past, present & future. May we find release from injustice & learn to resolve our conflicts in the world today.
