"My main objective in preparing this small volume has been to collect and preserve such portions of Baptist history as could not be conveniently inserted in my former writings on the subject. Although most of the incidents here recorded are of a very common character, yet they may be interesting to some of our people, who would like to review the doings of their brethren for the period they embrace; they may also afford aid to our future historians." - Preface.
David Benedict (1779-1874), Baptist minister born in Norwalk, Connecticut. Apprenticed in the shoemaker’s trade, Benedict found a way to attend Brown College, graduating in 1806. He was for 25 years pastor of the Baptist church in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. He was an avid collector of historical materials, and these primary sources make up the bulk of this remarkable history of the Baptist denomination.
