The Brief Battle of Prestonpans (1745)
England's King James II may have been deposed in the Glorious Revolution of 1688, but he was not without supporters. These supporters, the Jacobites, spent the next six decades unsuccessfully fighting to restore him—and, later, his descendants—to the throne.

Why was Mexico City so hard hit?
