    Text Wednesday, April 16th, 1746...The fateful day Cumberland's guns blasted Jacobite hopes and sounded a death knell for the old Highland way of life. Culloden, Wednesday, April 16th, 1746, Bonnie Prince Charlie's exhausted forces met a much larger army of Hanoverian regulars led by the Duke of Cumberland. Reckless bravery they displayed in plenty, but it was not enough to win the day.
