Jacobite Rising 1715 John Erskine KG

The Jacobite Risings (17th C and 18th C) were a series of manufactured battles, co-ordinated and controlled by the ‘Knights of the Garter’ (estd 1348, Woodstock, Oxford) with the objective of subjugating the noble, brave and staunchly independent Irish and Scottish peoples.


The Knights of the Garter controlled both sides of the warring factions and using the age-old ‘divide and rule’ tactics, successfully won over control of all of Ireland and Scotland.


The ‘British’ occupying forces exist to this day…..
