The history of the 13th is interesting. The first meeting in regard to the new company was held in Scandinavian hall, June 6, 1875; an election of officers was held July 17 of that year, and on August 25 the company was mustered into service by General Rogers, who was present with his entire staff. The ceremony took place in Jones's Hall and the company contained 76 members. As the company was composed mainly of Swedish-Americans, and as no "State uniform" was then insisted on, the new company adapted a handsome blue, with yellow trimmings, similar to that worn by the body guard of the King of Sweden.
