QUICK STEP 13th REGIMENT. English, March (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The regiment that in Glasgow music publisher James Aird's era was known as the 13th was raised in 1685 by James II to suppress the Protestant rebellions led by the Duke of Monmouth and the Earl of Argyll. It was known by the name of successive colonels (e.g. as Pulteney's Foot at the Battle of Culloden), but was designated the 13th Regiment of Foot in the army reorganization of 1751. In 1782 the regiment was associated with a county and became the 13th (Somersetshire) Regiment of Foot.
