About Henry Bedinger, III

First Ambassador to Denmark under President Pierce

\n

"Henry Bedinger, son of the Revolutionary hero, Daniel Bedinger, and Sarah Rutherford Bedinger, was born at Bedford, near Shepherdstown, West Virginia, in 1812. After receiving a liberal classical education, he studied law and practiced his profession in Shepherdstown and in Charles Town. In 1845, he succeeded his partner and brother-in-law, George Rust, as representative in Congress and was re-elected for a second term. He was an eloquent speaker, and an exceptionally able debater, and was called the Eagle of Harpers Ferry. In 1853, he was appointed charge d'affaires to Denmark, and was later resident minister. He was instrumental in securing the Skager Rack and Cattegat Treaty, by which Denmark agreed to abolish sound dues. Throughout his distinguished career as a diplomat, he thought longingly of his home and his friends in his own country, and it was with great personal satisfaction that he laid aside his public duties and returned to Shepherdstown. In his honor the citizens of the town gave a great demonstration, one of the features of which was a barbecue. Only a short time after he received his welcome home, he contracted pneumonia and on November 26, 1858, after an illness of only five days, he died at his home in Shepherdstown."
