The Battle of Prestonpans
The final stage of the campaign began when Sir John Cope led his army out of Dunbar on the morning of 19 September. The Jacobite Army marched eastwards from Edinburgh the following day, ready to intercept him in East Lothian. The two armies finally met in the early afternoon of 20 September, but it would be until the following dawn that the two armies would clash. The video below gives a quick introduction to the battlefield area and the troop movements within it. The timeline underneath provides a little more detail.
