The brigade was made up of three regiments, led by Colonels MacDonnell and O'Cahan, and Major Laghtman. The brigade itself was led by the colourful Highlander, Alasdair MacDonald. This brigade of regular troops was the cornerstone of Montrose's force, and an important part of his victories. But without reinforcements, and rapidly dwindling numbers, their destruction at Philiphaugh meant the end of Montrose's forces.
Here is the next in the series this time its the Irish Musketeer. Like the pikeman he is dressed in the traditionally Irish clothing and is readying his musket. I really like this chap.
