Lecture | A Peer Among Princes - The Life of Thomas Graham

The Black Watch Castle and Museum, Perth
10th November | 6.30pm-8.00pm
Philip Grant will give a lecture about Sir Thomas Graham, Lord Lynedoch, who is best known for his exceptional military career. He was one of the Duke of Wellington's ablest lieutenants during the Peninsular War - he won a great victory against the French at the Battle of Barrosa, conducted the siege of San Sebastian and acted as the duke's second in command. But he was much more than a soldier with broad interests as a wealthy and innovative Scottish landowner, politician, sportsman and traveller.
Philip Grant will explore Graham's long and varied life in absorbing detail, often quoting from his vivid letters and diaries.
