The battle of Stirling bridge took place in 1297 near Stirling castle. The battle was really important because The Scots won and William Wallace became Guardian of Scotland. The English had between 200 -300 cavalry and 10,000 foot soldiers while the Scots only had 36 horseman and 8,000 foot soldiers.
William Wallace died on 23rd August by decapitation (getting hung, drawn and quartered) in Smithfield, London. Following the trial on 23rd August, 1305, Wallace was taken to the Tower of London where he was stripped naked and dragged through the city by his heels.
