The Lion of the Covenant: The Story of Richard Cameron
- Maurice Grant
Of all the names associated with the cause of the Scottish Covenanters and their heroic resistance to arbitrary power, none is better known than that of Richard Cameron. As preacher, public figure, and popular leader, he epitomized the steadfastness of a people in the face of bitter and protracted persecution. Such was the impact of his life that, even in his own day, his name came to be synonymous with uncompromising adherence to a cause—a cause that was of the very essence of civil and religious freedom. After his death, his name was kept alive in the public memory by those who continued to witness for the values in which he believed, and it was later adopted by a distinguished military regiment which was formed to defend those very same values.
