William Wallace Before the Battle of Stirling Bridge by Mark Churms,
published by Cranston Fine Arts.
After Edward 1st proclaimed himself King of
Scotland Sir William Wallace rallied Scots in the South West and began
attacking English occupying forces around Scotland. Edward I ordered the
Earl of Surrey to put down the rebellion, after taking the surrender of
rebel forces at Irvine the Earl of Surrey marched against William
Wallace's forces at Stirling. He ordered his army to cross the narrow
bridge over the Forth River near the Abbey of Cambuskenneth on September
11th. From a vantage point overlooking the bridge William Wallace
watched and waited until the English army of 5,000 had crossed Stirling
bridge and with the bridge being crowded with troops he launched his
attack with his entire force wiping out the entire bridgehead. The rest
of the English army fell back but William Wallace pursued. After this
defeat English forces were evacuated south as far as the River Tweed.
