Helion and Company Publishing are proud to announce a special extra From Reason to Revolution 1721-1815 Conference organised in conjunction with the Battle of Prestonpans 1745 Heritage Trust and generously sponsored by the The British Commission for Military History and The Society for Army Historical Research. This conference will consider a variety of topics related to the Jacobite Rising of 1745, looking at both sides and also seeking to place the Rising within the context of wider European events.

Coverage stretches from the raising of the Jacobite clans through to the aftermath of Culloden, and beyond to the legacy and heritage of the Rising. Topics include the military road network, medical aspects, support for the Rising by the Bourbon powers, the invasion of England, and a case-study of Jacobite generalship.

Many of the speakers are published authors of works in the From Reason to Revolution series or are working towards some of our future titles. As well as trying to shed new light on old controversies, our speakers will also seek to cover some of the more unusual and overlooked aspects of the Rising, and it is hoped that the papers will provoke the usual interesting and lively discussions.

Hot and cold drinks will be available throughout the day, a buffet lunch will be provided, and we will be launching new publications on the day with special introductory offers and other discounts.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 1745 Conference 2020 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
