Composed by Iain mac Mhurchaidh (John MacRae) of Kintail, who emigrated to South Carolina in 1774, to his baby daughter shortly after they arrived in the new world. He was recruited for the Royal Highland Emigrants regiment and was present at the ambush at Moore's Creek Bridge. He was eventually captured by the enemy and held in captivity for some time, where he was apparently badly treated and died.
