Excerpt from The Story of Butler's Rangers and the Settlement of Niagara

The valleys of the Mohawk and its principal tributary from the south, the Schoharie Kill, were frequently termed the Garden of the Province, being composed of rich deep virgin soil, easy of cultivation, and yielding enormous crops of grass and grain. Stretching for some fifty miles along either bank of the Upper Mohawk, but no where more than two miles in width, lay a noted fertile tract, called, from the nationality of its inhabitants, the German Flats. The neighboring hillsides were clothed with majestic pines, and the hum of the saw mill was heard on every petty creek. A numerous fleet of small sailing vessels was constantly employed in carrying the varied. Products of this region to the sea coast. So marked was the general prosperity of the province, during the twenty years preceding the revolution, that a regretful Loyalist has termed this period the Golden Age of New York.
