James Keith fled Scotland after the failure of the Jacobite uprising. He initially made a name for himself in the Russian service. Keith eventually entered the Prussian service and was at Frederick the Greats side at the battles of Prague, Rossbach, Leuthen and Olmutz. At Hochkirch Frederick ignored Keiths advice, but was saved from catastrophe when the Scottish general sacrificed himself. Today a statue of General Keith stands in the Scottish town of Peterhead, a gift of the Prussian monarchy.
