    Military
    • "He was one of the first that took up arms against the tyranny of the King of England and his ministers," and raised a company of minutement at his own expense, being commisssioned a Captain, August, 1776, in the third battalion of York Co. These militia were formed into the organization known as the "Flying Camp," were for a time stationed in "the Jerseys," and then made up part of the unfortunate garrison of Fort Washington, who were captured, and many of the prisoners bayoneted by the British, while Washington, viewing from the other side of the river the tragedy he could not prevent, wept "with the tenderness of a child." Capt. B. was severly wounded and "taken prisoner, fighting at the head of his company," and being sent to the infamouse British prisons in new York, "endured a long and hard captivity which induced the disease which terminated his life." After an imprisonment of six months, during which he kept himself from starving by shoemaking, he "was finally exchanged thro' the influence of his son-in-law, Maj. Clark, and would have been promoted, but on account of his wounds was retired."
