" ... papers which consist of personal recollections written by Bedinger or taken by Draper from his verbal dictation, affidavits of services, land warrants, and letters from his descendants." -- Back cover.

"Bedinger's military career began in 1775 in Virginia where he enlisted in Col. Hugh Stevenson's company of sharpshooters. He participated in the siege of Boston and the battle of Germantown, and brought supplies to the army at Valley Forge. He took part in Bowman's Campaign of 1779, an abortive attack on the Shawnee indian village. Later that year he joined a company setting forth for Kentucky, where they reinforced the indian-harassed pioneers at Boonesborough. He was present at the siege of Yorktown, and eventually explored the Green River country in Kentucky and made his permanent home at Lower Blue Licks." -- Back cover
