New Battle of Edgehill Website
A new Website, battleofedgehill.org, explores the August 22, 1642, battle of Edgehill where the army of England’s King Charles I clashed with the forces of Parliament. It was the first pitched battle of the English Civil War.
Every significant point on the battlefield is represented by a clickable icon that brings up information about the location. Black skulls represent areas where mass graves or numerous skeletons have been found. The Photographs & Public Paths button brings up a map overlaid with camera icons. Click on one and you get a photograph of the spot.
There are numerous other features, but all in all, this site offers a great way to "tour" the field of the first battle of the English Civil War. The description of the battle used on the site comes from one of our partner publications, Military History magazine.
