Message from the President – August 2018
Where has summer gone…..except, that is for the blistering heat we have had for the past week or so. It seems like only a few weeks since the Red Deer shoot but family visits and a “Bucket List” trip to Haida Gwaii in June have prevented me from me attending the Fort Mac and Blaeberry River shoots. A forthcoming Bucket List trip to Alaska precludes Beechy, Heffley Creek and Sherwood Park. Glad to have made the Provincial Championships at Camrose two weeks ago!
The turnout for our Provincials was a disappointment with only 14 entries but as usual it took some good scores to win awards so in that sense the quality of the competition was not down. Many thanks on behalf of the ABPA and myself personally to Ken and Mary Lynn Brown for pulling much of the range activities together on short notice when our Vice President Rob McCoy had to hand off his responsibilities to deal with urgent family matters. Their unique idea of a “Golf” score for the Primitive Aggregate seemed well received by the shooters and certainly took less time on the range when compared to our traditional approach to that event. Thanks also to Jordan Baker, Phil Faubian and Roger Murray for help in setting up the rifle and archery targets.
Our mid-year general meeting resulted in some very useful ideas being presented in terms of slightly changing some of the Provincials events. Should there be a smoothbore event? Could we somehow factor Knife, hawk and archery scores into the Primitive Aggregate? Also, there seems to have been an enthusiastic response to my earlier message where I emphasized the need to be thinking about succession planning for our ABPA Executive, especially given that your President and Secretary Treasurer are both retiring at the next AGM.
Until next time….P-P-B and don’t forget it!!

Editor Note: There were 18 shooters and I had a great time even if unable to do all the shooting events as doing scoring and calculating the winners. See Winners and article later in newsletter. Ken would like to Thank George Andrix, Larry Boyd, Jordan Baker and Doug Meeking with help setting up the backboards for the paper shoot and setting the distances for the Novelty shoot items. Seem we need to add more distance to spread out the scores.

2018 Red Deer F&G/ABPA Fall Trail Walk
September 21, 22 & 23 @ Red Deer Fish and Game Habitat Land
We are trying to expand our play time and allow everyone the opportunity to participate in all the activities they choose, so we will have a couple of activities on Friday. We will have an expanded archery shoot as well. Brian Jeffery will host target practice and coaching starting on Friday afternoon. Ken Brown will also move the muzzle loading long range shoot to Friday. Rob McCoy will host a “hydraulic shoot also on Friday. See schedule for details.
1. The habitat land is located on the Southeast side of Red Deer on hwy 816. Approximately 3 miles south from hwy 595 or approximately 4 1/2 miles north from hwy 42, located on the East side of the road.
2. On Friday September 21, the Hawk and Knife trail will be open for Non Official score card play. Ken’s long range shoot and Rob’s ”hydraulic Shoot” will happen. Start times to be determined.
3. Sign in will start Friday at 6:30 pm, there is a $15 entry fee per person for ABPA or RDF&G members and a $25 fee for non-members. We are again asking competitors to sign a waiver. We will not have blanket prizes. We will have numerous cash prizes for the competitors. However, you must be present to receive the prize.
4. The trail walk is for traditional muzzle loading rifles with iron sights and will start at 9:30 AM Saturday with a short meeting at the kitchen. In-lines will be allowed if using patched round ball, but not be available for prizes. Juniors may shoot the trail with a rim fire, if accompanied by an adult. The walk will be essentially the same as the May shoot. We will have 25 targets, with the contingent 3 targets, if one of the primary targets gets broken. Details will be posted at the scoring table
5. Hawk and Knife will be a bit different than the one in May. We will have a two tier system. The more advanced throwers will compete for prize money as per the May event. Score cards must be turned into the scoring team by Noon Sunday. Those of us that are less accomplished will be having a fun match where we are happy when the knife or hawk actually sticks in a block. We will arrange our own prizes.
6. Primitive Bow: We have made a few changes, hopefully making it a better shoot! More targets, more time. There will be a time for practice on Friday afternoon/evening with opportunity for some coaching if desired. Competition will start at 1pm on Saturday afternoon.
7. There will be a long shot competition for front loaders, but not for cartridge rifles Friday. The “hydraulic shoot” will require you bring a shot gun. Preferred that it be a bp, but Rob may make some exceptions.
8. Pat will have the ice cream social on Saturday night and Ken Brown says they will cook breakfast for everyone Sunday morning before the trail walk. Bring your own plate and cutlery.
9. Sunday’s 20 target trail will start anytime AFTER 9 am.
10. Prizes will be given out as soon as the scorers can make it happen, probably after 1 pm Sunday.
Note: Same as May, camping will be available starting Thursday afternoon. Note: No Pistols!

I personally favor the person who can stick a hawk in a block gets a point, ditto for the knife. Alternate rules can be devised for your individual group.
Trail Walk Broken Target Rule: If you come upon a target that is broken, pull the stake with the number and put it on the ground, draw a line through that number on your score card.

There were 18 shooters and we increased our ABPA membership by 2. The income from the shooters entance fee was $437.00. Expenses of $78.51 was submitted by Ken & Mary Lynn Brown, this covered basics like coffee, cream, water, cookies, cups and small amount of stationary to run the shoot. Other expenses will include the cost of the Metals, small amount for the Host Range Volunteers that served as the Range Safety Officer, Scorers and general helper for watching novitly shoots and Fee to Host Range $500. Some of these costs could be covered under the Grant from Alberta Federation of Shooting Sports (AFSS). So without the grant the Provincials would be in a loss situation. How the Provincials will work out should be seen in our Financial statements at the AGM.
A Raffle was done of a Ducks Unlimited sculpture of “Watchful Rest” and the income was $185, I don’t know for sure the cost. Raffle winner Bob Kozack President of Camrose Range. Mary Lynn Brown

Lost and Noble Causes
Part 2– The Rising Begins
By Russ Christopher
The first steps that would lead to the last stand at Culloden Moor were taken in 1688 when King James the 2nd of England and the 7th of Scotland were deposed by a coup and he fled the country. Scotland and England now found themselves committed to a European war against France. The war was long, bloody and very expensive. Thus the two countries were joined in a political union in 1707 aimed at better using the exhausted resources of the two countries. This proved to be a very unpopular, leading to a constitutional crisis on the death of Queen Anne in 1714.
There were two contenders for the vacant throne. The first was George, elector of Hanover from a minor German state in Prussia. The second claimant was the Catholic house of Stuart who is in exile in Italy. Their claim to the throne was also valid, but there was little support for them after being pushed into exile. The only option for the Stuarts was to present themselves as the ancient kings of an Independent Scotland willing to dissolve the union. By this means they were able to harness considerable national support but in reality their eyes remain firmly fixed on the English crown. The English parliament would choose the house of Hanover. This would leave the Stuart’s supporters no option but a military one. Thus in 1715 the first Jacobite rebellion began. The opposing forces came to battle at Sherrif Muir resulting in a draw with both sides leaving the battlefield. Some thirty years later, the prospects for a second rebellion were very bleak. By the end of the 1730’s Stuart agents reported gloomily that if a second rebellion could not be mounted the Stuarts would lose by default. The problem was further compounded by the Jacobite leaders bluntly stating that the outside assistance from France was essential. The French would land an invasion force in the Thames estuary and the Jacobites would march south to meet them.
It was unfortunate therefore that France had very little interest in the Stuart cause. France had fought a series of wars against England in the last sixty years. Both sides had declared a peace in their recent latest conflict, the war of the Austrian succession. However if France is to open a second front within England, they would be forced to withdraw the English armies from Flanders and return home. Nevertheless in 1744 an invasion force was to be put together and landed at the Thames River. Unfortunately channel storms scattered the fleets and they returned to their home ports. By this time events had changed, the war of the Spanish succession was back on and the armies marched north to Flanders. It was at this point that the events of the rising began to read like a spy novel. The old King James was referred to as the old pretender and his oldest son Prince Charles Edward Stuart at the age of 25 was the young pretender. He had been raised on stories that the Stuarts were the rightful Kings of England and Scotland. However the war of the Austrian succession had resumed and any prospect of regaining the throne looked dismal at best. But in the blink of an eye events began to change. It was a long shot but to a young bourgeois like Prince Charles he would take the gamble. Through various secret meetings and affairs after dark introductions were made and ventures discussed. With his fathers’ commission as Prince Regent in his pocket, the Prince was offered help from an unlikely source. Ever since old King James had been defeated by the Dutchman William at the battle of the Boyne in Ireland there had been a large number of Irish exiles that had escaped to Brittany. Many of these ex patriots were ship owners who set up shop in the ports of Nantes and Saint Malo. It was now the events offered a ray of hope for the Prince. Within the French army was a unit called the Irish brigade commanded by Lord Claire. The men and officers all came from Scotland and Ireland. The slang term they used was the flight of the wild geese. Every year young men leave Ireland to serve in European armies on the continent. The Dutch recruit them as well as armies in Flanders and France has a whole brigade of them. Lord Claire introduced Prince Charles to a consortium of these ship owners. This company was headed up by Walter Rutledge and Anthony Walsh. They had been engaged in the slave trade between

Alberta Black Powder Association Newsletter Sep/ Oct 2018 Page 9 PunchBowl
Africa and the West Indies. This venture had been seriously disrupted by the recent war so they had turned to privateering instead. Now for an unspecified price, their ships were prepared to carry the Prince back to Scotland and run munitions through the English blockade. And so, with money raised by pawning his mother’s rubies, the Prince outfitted one frigate, the Doutelle and a shop of the line called the Elizabeth. On July the fifth, the company ships cleared Belle Isle and headed for Scotland. On July the ninth the Elizabeth had a naval battle with the HMS Lion. The Doutelle escaped her pursuers but the Elizabeth returned to home port. The Prince arrives on July the 23rd at the island of Eriskay to an unfriendly welcome. The Prince arrives with just seven companions escorted by Anthony Walsh and had hardly no cash or equipment. He does however bring his courtesan who plays a part later in our story. The locals flatly refuse to join him and advise him to return home. The Prince then pressed on to the mainland and entered into a desperate round of negotiations with other potential supporters. Some measure of the difficulty in convincing the clan chieftains to commit to the rebel cause the Stuart standard isn’t raised until August 19th. By this time the British government was only too well aware of what was going on and the commander in chief North Britain had been ordered into the hills.
I thought we would take a look at the various officers who flocked to the Princes side. I will list them according to rank.
Prince Charles Edward Stuart—“1720-1788” He is the son of the exiled King James. Born in Bologna Italy, the young pretender came to Scotland with his father’s permission to act as Prince Regent. He had an obsession to regain the twin thrones of Scotland and England. He was young, physically fit, handsome, and charismatic. He was eager to act the dashing leader of an insurrection regardless of the long odds. However his enthusiasm for military operations was very much lacking. He had a tendency to advocate all responsibility when it came to all things military. He was fortunate to have a competent chief of staff. In all three major battles, his presence was decorative rather than useful. He was lucky enough to escape back to Europe after Culloden and he ended his days in alcoholic exile married to an unfaithful wife.
General John William Sullivan—Born in the county Kerry, Sullivan had entered the French army in 1721. He served in Italy and then the Rhine, gaining experience in irregular warfare. In 1745 he was offered the rank of General and appointed to Prince Charles staff. He also did double duty as the quartermaster of the Jacobite army. Unfortunately he and his Lieutenant General George Murray took an instant dislike to one another. In reality Sullivan was a capable staff officer and on the day of Culloden was left in sole charge of the army. When the Prince had arrived in Scotland he had travelled with his courtezan. Unfortunately she took a liking to General Sullivan and ran off with him. Sullivan and the Prince would never speak to each other again. He was lucky to escape back to France and return to the French army.
Lord George Murray—“1694-1760” He was the brother of the Duke of Athole and his background was suspicious from the very beginning. In 1715 he had turned down a commission in the British Royal Scots as an Ensign, to join the first Jacobite rising. He also fought at Glenshiel in 1719 and was pardoned in 1726. In 1745, he tried without success to raise volunteers for the British General John Copes army. His defection to the rebel cause came late in the day, but he was appointed Lieutenant General because of his local influence. Many of his fellow officers regarded him with suspicion and after the rebellion the gossip was that he had acted as a traitor. He was an aggressive officer and always carried out his plans promptly. However he was blunt and always had a feeling of superiority and would not listen to advice. His night attack just before the battle ended in near disaster. However on the day of the battle he fought bravely as brigade commander and afterward escaped into exile in Holland.
James Drummond- the Duke of Perth—He was personally very popular and did have some ability. Appointed a Lieutenant General at the beginning of the rebellion, he stepped down when the Jacobite army crossed into England on its march to London. He did this partly because he was a Catholic commander and because like most people relations with the temperamental George Murray however when the Jacks

Alberta Black Powder Association Newsletter Sep/ Oct 2018 Page 10 PunchBowl
returned to Scotland he again took up his command. He did manage to escape from Culloden but he died onboard the ship taking into exile in France.
Lord John Drummond-the younger brother of the Duke of Perth—Originally he was an officer in the Irish regiment Dillion in the French Irish brigade. He raised his own unit, the Royal Ecossis in August of 1744 and they were sent to Scotland when the rebellion began. He also commanded all the French troupes sent to Scotland and commanded the centre division in the Jacobite front line. In actual fact he spent most of the battle with his brother on the left. Described as a careless and far from enterprising officer, he succeeded his brother as the Duke of Perth but died at the siege of Bergen Op-Zoom in 1747 fighting on the continent.
John Roy Stuart-One of the Jacobite army’s few professional soldiers, he served in the British army before going into the French service. He became a captain in the Grenadier Company of the Royal Ecossis. In 1745 he returned to Scotland and raised his own regiment for the Prince. Many in this regiment were from Edinburough while others were pressed men from captured British units. He also served as staff officer and at Culloden commanded the second line reserve. John Roy Stuart was also a noted adventurer and years later Scottish authors like Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson used him as inspiration for fictional characters in some of their books about the rebellion.
Ewen MacPherson – also known as Clooney MacPherson. Of all the character that flocked to the Princes colours, none were as notorious as Clooney. In 1744 John Campbell of Loudon was given permission to raise a royal regiment known as the 64th Highlanders. MacDonell of Loch Garry and Clooney Macpherson were made Lieutenants in the 64th, but when news reached them of the beginning of the rebellion they both took their companies and deserted to the rebel cause. This would be regarded as a hanging offence if they should ever be caught. He then recruited his own regiment and he was made Colonel of this unit. They joined the Prince shortly after Preston Pans and took part in the ill-fated march to London. They fought at Clifton Moor and may have numbered at 400 men at Falkirk. The unit was “not” present at Culloden because they were sent north to the coast to try and recover the twelve thousand pounds sterling of French gold sent to help the Jacks. After their defeat at Culloden a few rebels talked of fighting on in the hills however Clooney never showed and his regiment surrendered to Loudon’s 64th highlanders. Clooney went into hiding for many years before he escaped to France and became an officer in the Irish brigade. One of his last acts of defiance came in the early 1750’s when the famous Appin trial was underway. Clooney came strolling into the trial proceedings as a witness for the defence. The British would have liked nothing better than to hang him but he could not be touched because he wore the uniform of a French officer.
Cameron of Lochiel- the Prince first arrived at the Isle of Eskay to a definite lack of support. Macleod and MacDonald of Sleat refused to have anything to do with him, MacDonald of Boisdale urged him to go home. The Prince tursley replied, “but I have come home” and set sail escorted by Anthony Walsh to the mainland. Here MacDonald of clan Renold at once rallied to his colours. But of all the chiefs it was Cameron of Lochiel who would have the greatest effect. He was cautious at first and talks dragged on for weeks, but when the Prince threatened to move on and meet with other chiefs he finally relented. Then on August 19th at Glen Finnan before some 900 MacDonald and Camerons the Stuart standard was raised and the old pretender was once more declared King. There were many characters that flocked to the Bonny Princes banner but none were as loyal as Cameron of Lochiel. Once committed he served from the very beginning to the final surrender. He was present at all major engagements and took part in the badly conceived march to London. By the time of Culloden his reputation as a Jacobite was unquestioned. His clan regiment was the first to be raised and the largest. It was about 700 strong about the time of Culloden. When he called his clan out some 750 men turned out. He then sent 150 of these back home because they had no weapons. They suffered heavy casualties at Culloden and returned home. Ten days later Lochiel received word that some of the Jacks were going to fight on in the hills. He then called his boys out a second time and 350 rallied on his word. However with no chance of local resupply they returned home. They were

Alberta Black Powder Association Newsletter Sep/ Oct 2018 Page 11 PunchBowl
finally disbanded May 26th 1746. Lochiel himself had to go into hiding with a price on his head. Over the years some of his officers would seek him out to see the old chief. The talk would eventually come back to the events of ’45. Lochiel remained convinced that a second rising would happen in the future. The Prince will return over the water again. He will never abandon his people. He remained a committed Jacobite till the very end.
The story of the last Jacobite rebellion will go on for several newsletters in the future. In the next issue I hope to talk about weapons and inject some more truthful modern research about these tragic events.
