Rebell Gratitude

Another image of the '45 for you.
Rebell Gratitude, or a representation of the treachery and barbarity of two rebell officers at the Battle of Culloden...(which) greatly heightened the slaughter that was that day made of their party...this battle was fought 16 April 1746
It depicts the shooting of Captain Crosett, Engineer and ADC to Cumberland, by a Highland officer whose life had been spared.
