The Gray Champion by Nathaniel Hawthorne

This story is set in the early colonial period during the rule of James II when the Colonial rulers appointed by the crown were Anglicans and those ruled were Puritans. Hawthorne’s story is based upon one of the most commonly shared folklore themes in the world, the arising of a supernatural champion in times of peril.
