THE PENTLAND RISING
semblance of life from the victim enclosed in his toils.
The flanking parties of horse were forced in upon
the centre, and though, as even Turner grants, they
fought with desperation, a general flight was the
result.
But when they fell there was none to sing their
coronach or wail the death-wail over them. Those
who sacrificed themselves for the peace, the liberty,
and the religion of their fellow-countrymen, lay
bleaching in the field of death for long, and when
at last they were buried by charity, the peasants dug
up their bodies, desecrated their graves, and cast
them once more upon the open heath for the sorry
value of their winding-sheets !
