Re: Sinclair Dates

A Sinclair date today:

In the 1745 Jacobite revolt, Bonnie Prince Charlie reached Blair Castle
today and remained overnight, on his way south after landing at Glenfinnan.
The Goverment army occupied the castle in 1746 as the Jacobite revolt came
to its forgone conclusion. The Jacobites under Lord George Murray, lay siege
to Blair in what  was  the last castle siege in Britain.

Queen Victoria visited Blair in 1844. She presented the 200 Athollmen who
formed the royal bodyguard with regimental colours. They are now the only
private army in Europe.
