Thomas Campbell 1777-1844
Thomas Campbell was born in Glasgow, the son of a merchant, and was educated at Glasgow University.
His first publication was The Pleasures of Hope (1799), followed by Gertrude of Wyoming (1809), and The Pilgrim of Glencoe (1842). Most of his best poems have military themes, such as The Battle of the Baltic, Hohen Linden, Ye Mariners of England, Lochiel's Warning, and The Soldier's Dream, but he is probably best known for Lord Ullin's Daughter. Campbell was a leading reformer and one of the founders of London University.
