Battle of the Boyne

William's artillery was far superior to that of James and contributed to William's victory. James had mostly Irish Catholics in his army of 45,000 with some French troops who contributed little to the battle. Their casualties were 1,200 killed, while William's army of 37,000 men from Ulster, England, Holland and Denmark suffered only 500 killed.
