The Battle of Stirling Bridge was one of Scotland's great victories over the English during the Scottish Wars of independence The combined forces of Sir Andrew De Moray and Sir William Wallace utilized the narrow bridge which could only allow two abreast to cross thus allowing the Scottish forces the victory Many English knight fell to their death into the forth as their armour dragged them down to drown The cost of the victory was high Co-commander and Guardian of Scotland Sir Andrew De Moray was mortally wounded and died a few months after the battle from his wounds ... Sir William Wallace with the help of his loyal knights Sir John Stewart of Bonkyll and Sir John De Graeme would continue the fight I have included some illustrated depictions of the Battle by andrew hillhouse to give an idea of the battle
