The Bedford Story - Famous Names

by Ned Frear

Famous Names by Ned Frear

Out of the mists of English history, the name of Bedford emerges. It is the name of a succession of powerful Dukes. In this name, a fort arises in the Pennsylvania Wilderness, and a village endures to attract an uncommon community of families. Their relations and connections begin the list of famous names. Some come with the armies, some for adventure. Many are politicians. And some are native sons, gone out to make their names, Bedford, through its famous names, is common to many books of American History.
