The House of Commons was willing to vote the huge sums that the king needed to finance his war against the Scots, but not until their grievances—some dating back more than a decade—had been redressed. Among those whom Cromwell specifically ordered to be killed were the members of Catholic religious orders, priests, monks, and nuns. It has been suggested that the actual battle took place at one of several locations: a site near Inverurie, Bennachie Hill, northwest of Aberdeen; a flat plain known as the Muir of Blair, Stonehaven, and the Hill of Moncrieffe. Charles was less skillful or restrained than his father; his attempts to enforce Anglican practices in the Church of Scotland created opposition that reached a flashpoint when he introduced the Book of Common Prayer. In both battles, Cromwell's forces behaved brutally, slaughtering civilians as well as Irish soldiers. Five miles south west of Perth.

The terms for such assistance were steep. See also the English Civil War Background. The northern shires quickly raised an army of around 15, men and intercepted the Scots army, 20, strong at Durham. Known as the Wolf of Badenoch, his deeds were considered evil even by the standards of a barbaric time. The Covenanters had set up in a good position, on a ridge looking down on their enemy, but suffered due to having too many nobles in positions of command, which led to arguments and indecisiveness.

The others escaped to the hills, but they were broken as an effective force and soon afterwards dispersed. In England and Scotland, rumours spread that the killings had the king's sanction, which, for many, foreshadowed their own fate if the king's Irish troops landed in Britain. Such proclamations and claims meant little though, as most of the island refused to respect it. Cromwell's increasing sense of divine mission would animate his rule over the government in subsequent years. Learning of this, on September 7, an armed mob broke into Tolbooth Prison, took Porteous and hanged him in the street. See also the English Civil War Background.
