The MotherBedford.com website, as some of you who have already visited it might be aware, is devoted to the history of the south-central region of Pennsylvania that was created as Bedford County in 1771. The time periods covered in the website are primarily the Colonial (from the late-1600s to the 1760s) and the American Revolutionary War (from the 1760s to the 1780s).
For the website I have written a number of (sometimes lengthy) articles on a variety of topics relating to the American Revolutionary War and how it affected the residents of this frontier region. Articles also deal with everyday life during the Colonial and the American Revolutionary War periods.
For this blog, I plan to present a number of smaller articles about things that relate to the time periods that the website encompasses, but which might not fit into the website itself.
