The Battle of Bannockburn.'Twas on a Sabbath morning, In the lovely month of June, That pennons floated gaily And helmets glittered in the sun; While many a gallant knight, And many a bowman strong, Are marching on to battle With merry laugh and song...Bruce saw the English waver, Thinking they were undone, So he dashed in amongst them And Bannockburn was won. For some where cut to pieces, Others turned rein and fled, And on Scottish soil were left to rot Thirty thousnad English dead. Mary C. Dunn.
The Battle of Bannockburn (1314) was a glorious victory for the Scottish during the Wars of Scottish Independence. It was the most significant battle during the First War of Scottish Independence. Robert Bruce's position as King was greatly strengthened by the outcome, leaving England and Edward II somewhat shamed.
