Description: In 1688, William and Mary took the English throne from Mary's father James in an event remembered as the "Glorious Revolution." The campaign in England was praised as a nearly bloodless triumph of Protestant constitutionalism over Catholic absolutism. When the revolution took hold in Scotland, however, the story was very different. A bloody war ensued the aftermath of which changed that kingdom forever. What caused Scotland's revolutionary experience to be so unlike the one to the South? Through the eye's of William's commander, General Hugh MacKay, the background and causes of the war, the narrative of the campaign itself and the aftermath of this momentous transfer of power will be examined.
