Anyone descended from Culloden winners? - News: "AT THE Battle of Culloden the 5,000-strong Jacobite army was heavily outnumbered by the government side, which had 9,000 troops.
Yet efforts to find descendants of those who fought in the clash have found plenty of volunteers lining up behind Bonnie Prince Charlie and few with Hanoverian connections.

In January, the National Trust for Scotland, the guardian of the battlefield, launched a global search for young people whose forefathers fought at Culloden."
