“Hey Johnnie Cope!” The Battle of Prestonpans in art, song and story

This exhibition, marking 275 years since the end of the last Jacobite rising, explores how the cultural legacy of the battle has long outlasted its immediate consequences. From paintings to pamphlets, from songbooks to the silver screen, discover how the story of the Battle of Prestonpans and its two commanding generals have been told through literature and the arts.
