Culloden Moor, Scotland

Culloden Moor, Scotland

CULLODEN MOOR, SCOTLAND. 16 April 1746. In a bloody defeat at the hands of William, duke of Cumberland, the forces of the Young Pretender (Charles Edward) were destroyed. This ended The 1745, or the Second Jacobite Rebellion. Hundreds of Highlanders sought refuge in North Carolina, and many established themselves around Cross Creek (later Fayetteville). There is reason to believe that the oath to the crown taken after Culloden is what kept so many of these refugees loyal during the American Revolution. Culloden was repeated on a minor scale at Moores Creek Bridge in North Carolina on 27 February 1776 and at Kettle Creek, Georgia, on 14 February 1779.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
