A Helpful Book?
- My ancestor was John Cragin, sent to Mass. on the John and Sarah after
Dunbar. I just got a very thin book thru Amazon.co.uk called "Scots Armies of
the English Civil Wars" published by Osprey Publishing, Men-at-Arms series.
It gives a list of regiments of infantry and also cavalry units that
"probaly" fought at Dunbar. They use the term "reconstructed from a rather
garbled English intelligence summary..." and other sources. It appears to be
a starting point if one can figure out what lairds came from what areas.
Besides Amazon.co.uk, Osprey has a website (I haven't visited it yet) at
Hope this helps.
