Battles in which my ancestors fought

One of the best ways to have your name recorded in history is to fight in a battle. Of course it also helps to be on the winning side and to be the general. However lowly peasents and enlisted men who were particularly heroic do get remembered. The Clan MacKay has produced a disproportionate number of Victoria Cross recipients for instance. My ancestors also fought in both World Wars and record keeping at least on a unit level is much more accurate in the last 100 or so years, so here is a list of historical battles in chronological order which I'm pretty certain one or more of my ancestors fought.
