HARRISON SETT FIGURE 1. American, Quadrille (6/8 time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABAC. Elias Howe's quadrille set, the six figure "Harrison Sett", was perhaps named in honor of William Henry Harrison a military figure, politician, and ninth President of the United States, who began his term in 1841. It was cut short, however, only 31 days into his term when he developed a fever (perhaps typhoid or pneumonia) and expired. He was a member of the Whig party, the first one elected to the highest office.
