With a history of industrial toil, and a punishing work ethic, Rutherglen is quintessentially Glaswegian. A south-eastern suburb, bordering Cambuslang and Toryglen, Rutherglen is the oldest Royal burgh in Scotland. Nowadays, most of its residents make the short daily commute to work in Glasgow’s city centre – 60 years ago, it was Rutherglen at the centre of economic activity, as coal mining and White’s Chemical works kept men in a job. Coal mining – one of the hardest ways to make a living – all but died out in the aftermath of the Second World War, and the naivety of the Swinging 60s saw Rutherglen’s chemical works pollute a great deal of the surrounding area with heavy metals. If Rutherglen’s graft in the 60s and 70s had a great influence on the local environment, 300 years previous it was the scene of rebellion, when the Scottish Covenanters coalesced their manifesto at the Declaration of Rutherglen. It would champion their beliefs in a Presbyterian future for Scotland, one at odds with the rule of King Charles II, and it came at a time when the underground movement, besieged with Royalist antagonism, would make a stand at Drumclog Moor. The is no doubt, that the declaration made at Rutherglen was a precursor to the impromptu conflict and rising at the Battle of Drumclog Moor.
