In 1645 Wishart joined the Royalist army at Bathwell, and was appointed chaplain to Montrose, then Governor-General of Scotland. From this time he was constantly with the army, and his narrative of the campaign is that of an eye-witness. The above work has been translated into English and printed at different times, but in its original Latin is of rare occurrence.
