Another Hero of mine is Sir Alan Cathcart, who was a companion of King Robert I when he mounted the Scottish throne in 1307, and was engaged on his side at the Battle of Loudoun Hill that same year, when the Scots defeated the English. The Peerage quotes an old poem about the bravery of Sir Alan who accompanied King Robert the Bruce and his good humour.

The following year, he was made one of Edward Bruce's party of 50 horsemen who attacked and dispersed 1,500 cavalry under John de St. John in Galloway. The peerage quotes on old poem about Sir Alan's bravery and good humor. Another notable was the first Lord Cathcart, dignified with the honour in 1447 by King James II of Scotland. But then anyone that died in the cause of Scottish Freedom is a hero in my books and those that opposed Scottish Freedom are not worthy of remembrance. I have nothing against th nglish, as long as they rule each other. I just believe Scots are able to handle their own affairs without English tutoring, and English Taxation of Scotland .

Great topic! For me, I would have to say that my ultimate hero is my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. I would be nothing at all without Him. I have let Him down and failed Him, yet He remains faithful! What a King!

On a more earthly realm, my dad. He was a simple, Kentucky hillbilly who worked at a job he hated for 35 years just to feed me and my siblings. When my Mom got cancer, I watched him bathe her and love her even though she had lost her physical beauty by most folks standards. He raised an attorney, a preacher, and two girls that are self sufficient. Dad was never a rocket scientist, but he was the one thing no one else could be to me - Dad!

On another front, there are some Native American heroes that I respect. Red Cloud, perhaps the greatest Ogalala warrior ever. The United States surrendered to him on his terms during the Red Cloud War. Geronimo, an Apache, was perhaps the greatest guerrilla fighter this country has ever produced. Quanah Parker, the great Comanche, was able to prosper even after his people were placed under subjection. Crazy Horse, who taught Custer and the 7th Cavalry a few things! Lastly the great Navajo Code Talkers of WW II. It is my privilege to know many of them that are left personally. They loved and served a country that did not always do them right, and they did it with excellence! Semper Fi!

Well, now you have read my novel. Have a great day!
