10December

Culloden House

10 December 1747 saw the death of Duncan Forbes of Culloden, the Lord President of the Court of Session.

As a prominent Whig, like many Scots Forbes supported the Hanoverian cause and used his influence to dissuade a number of clans from joining the Jacobites. In this sense he was at least partly responsible for the failure of the Jacobite Rising. However Forbes was a fair-minded man who tried his best to mitigate the terrible reprisals following the Battle of Culloden.


Today's recipe: hearty clam chowder is a classic New England dish.
