Battle of Britain? Or does that count as it was an air battle?

Good guess, but no. It wasn't actually a pitched battle. Way before.

We are not, sadly. We're about a century later. It was a rebellion. James II against the Duke of Monmouth.

Good guess but no. That was all over by 1649. This is later still. It was one battle.

incorrect?

A. If you wanted to prove an answer is correct, you could include a link to a web site showing that particular piece of information.

It's not necesary to do that, however if anyone disagrees with an answer, they could query it and either look it up or ask the person who asked it to make sure that they are correct.

Hardly needs my confirmation but well looked-up, Kismit. The battle of Sedgemoor.
