The author has assembled into spread sheets crucial documents obtained over many years. They tell the story of this county’s Militia from Colonial days until the end of the Revolutionary War. This gives a really unique and valuable insight into the life and times of this county during this important decade of its existence. What was found here may well be indicative of what happened in other counties. Together, these spread sheets show that the American Revolution was not very revolutionary at the grass-roots level. The people who ran Bedford County before the revolution ran it afterwards as well.
