On 25 October 1854, the Sutherland Highlanders - the 93rd Regiment of Foot - faced down and repulsed a charge by the Russian cavalry, in a magnificent stand. A Russian cavalryman commented, "We expected to have to fight soldiers, but not red devils". The action was commemorated in several paintings including Robert Gibbs' The Thin Red Line
