   The officers for the Frontier Patriots Chapter for 2021 have been included on the webpage titled: 'Officers'. It can be accessed on the Mother Bedford website using the following link:

  A brief history of the Chapter can be accessed on this website using this link:    The complete history of the Blair County / Frontier Patriots Chapter is available in the book, Mother Bedford And The American Revolutionary War, as noted below.

   The book, Mother Bedford And The American Revolutionary War is still currently available for purchase from Closson Press. This history of Bedford County during the American Revolutionary War is the definitive history of the subject. Much of the information contained on the website was derived from the book. But the book contains so much more that could not be fit on the website. Every document to be found in the public archives pertaining to Bedford County during the American Revolutionary War period is transcribed in the book. Ordering information is available at the Closson Press website.

   During a week period coinciding with the 200th Anniversary of the death of George Washington, the Mother Bedford home page bore a banner graphic in memory of our nation's first Commander In Chief. The essays that were prepared for the Chapter newsletter during 1999 were created as web pages on the Mother Bedford website. If you would like to view them, simply click on the following link:

   The various essays produced for the Frontier Patriots Chapter's Newsletter under the title of A Chronology Of The American Revolutionary War have been reproduced on the Mother Bedford website. I will be uploading new essays as they are produced. If you want to view the Chronology, simply click on the following link:
