During a visit may I see what is the battle field of the Battle of Dunbar in 1650.

My 8th Great Grandfather was a POW from the Battle, he later was sent to what was then Kittery Maine Usa, on the ship Unity. In 1658 after finishing his tour as a slave, he is given land  ( along with other Scots ) in then Kittery Mine , now South Berwick Maine. Their land is now part of a Vaughan Woods State Park, I sure would like to see the area. thank you for any help

    Hi @radar643
    Thanks for your interesting post about your grandfather. There is no battlefiled site to visit in Dunbar but there is a monument to commemorate this battle. Earlier this year there was a re-enactment of the 2nd Battle of Dunbar (1650), the first having taken place in 1296. I think you will find out more information by contacting the Scottish Battlefield Trust direct. Good luck!  :)
