Battle of Bothwell Bridge

45254701_2071293836267724_4372210582011510784_oA superb, rare 19th century engraving of “The Battle of Bothwell Bridge“. I first saw this on the “Lost Houses of the Clyde Valley” Facebook page, run by Christine Wallace.

The engraving was done in 1850 and may include some artistic license of the battle which took place in 1679.
