This is a very detailed history of Herkimer County, including its geography, industries, agriculture, religion, education, social institutions, politics, role in the War for Independence, the War of 1812. Some individual men receive attention from the author, though their significance is unclear. Benton includes much about the earliest grants of land as well as the waterways, roads, turnpikes through the county.
Details about the geography, politics and economy can provide some useful information for researcher seeking a picture of the earliest days of Herkimer County. The author's style, common to his time, is formal and loquacious, but full of information.
