Killiecrankie Hero

At the Battle of Killiecrankie, Lochiel was attended by the son of his foster-brother. This faithful man followed him like his shadow, ready to assist him with his sword, or cover him from the shot of the enemy. Soon after the battle began, the chief missed his friend from his side, and turning round to look what had become of him, saw him lying on his back, with his breast pierced by an arrow. He had hardly breath before he expired to tell Lochiel, that, seeing an enemy, a highlander in General Mackay’s army aiming an arrow at him from the rear, he sprung behind him, and thus sheltered him from instant
death.
