Battle of bannockburn (what happened)

The battle of Bannockburn was in 1314 in Sterling in Scotland. It went for two days.

The battle was between Edward ll and Robert the Bruce. Robert the Bruce had 10,000 soldiers and Edward ll had 20,000.

The scots where out numbered by the English. But the scots still won because of the training and the leaderships that they had.

This is an important historical event for Scotland because It was the first time they had won a battle with England and that it lead to the freedom of Scotland as an independent country.  That ended sadly in the 1700s.
