Reply To: Tertium Quids


Good question. The thirteen identified “Quids” around 1806 were:

John Randolph (VA), leader
Nathaniel Macon (NC), leader
Joseph Hopper Nicholson of MD, leader
James M. Garnett of VA,
Philip R. Thompson of VA,
Abram Trigg of VA,
Richard Stanford of NC,
Thomas Spalding of GA,
David Rogerson Williams of SC,
Joseph Clay of PA,
Christopher Clark of VA,
Edwin Gray of VA,
Joseph Bryan of GA,

Taylor was not considered to be one of the “Quids” in congress but a sympathetic and powerful voice of support.
