Short Note This is a short note

Henry VII's army, under Lords Oxford, Essex, Suffolk and Daubeney, defeated the Cornish rebels under Lord Audley at Blackheath. By the time the battle took place, the Cornish force had dwindled considerably from its high point of 15 000, so that only about 9000-10 000 men remained to face the royal troops.
