If you have ever viewed and appreciated the Covenanter Martyrs Memorial at Greyfriars Churchyard in Edinburgh, you have James Currie to thank. It is said that Currie indeed sculpted the panel for the memorial himself. But who was he? He himself had experiences of suffering that he could relate and he was a close associate of leading Covenanters. His wife Helen Alexander was another noted Covenanter and the mother of the girl who organised the Children’s Covenant.
