155847_XEF6_005

This is an original 1893 monochrome in-text lithograph map of the Battle of Edgehill that took place on October 23, 1642 CE between English Royal and Parliamentary forces. The day prior, 12,400 Royalist troops under King Charles I and Prince Rupert found themselves unexpectedly close to 15,000 Roundhead forces under the Earl of Essex. The result of the battle was inconclusive as the attacks of both armies wavered as their soldiers frequently broke ranks to loot instead of fight.
