Bring It On - The Black Douglas

The Black Douglas stands firm whilst commanding a schiltron with Walter Stewart on the second day of the Battle of Bannockburn, Monday 24th June,1314. Sir James had been knighted by Robert the Bruce that very morning in recognition of his many achievements whilst fighting for his country’s liberation. Upon seeing King Edward II fleeing the field at the head of an enormous retinue of knights, King Robert the Bruce commanded Douglas to pursue and harass the English King. Douglas obeyed, and, with a small following of trusted men, chased Edward to the distant castle of Dunbar, where the English King hastily departed the country by boat.
