Bedford's Tour in 1807
Down the Cumberland, Ohio and Mississippi Rivers
from Nashville to New Orleans

Although Dr. Bedford's account is continuous, it was published in two parts in Vol. V of the Tennessee Historical Magazine: No. 1, April 1919 and No. 2, July. The parts were about the right size for a webpage, so I kept the division.

Part 1

From Nashville down the Cumberland and the Ohio, and a little ways down the Mississippi to New Madrid.

5:40‑63

Part 2

Down the Mississippi from New Madrid to New Orleans.

107‑122
