The fertile farmlands of the Mohawk Valley brought the first settlers to Whitestown, founded by Hugh White in 1784. Abundant water was available to service mills and to provide a means for shipping goods from the existing knitting mills, cheese factories, iron works, and lumberyards of Whitesboro, a village of Whitestown. Irish immigrants settled into Whitesboro after building the Erie Canal, while German immigrants brought their carpenter talents to build furniture, such as the famous Quigley rolltop desk. The Dutch sought out Wybo E. Wind, the Dutch baker who employed many in his bakery, and because of the large number of Welsh immigrants in Remsen, there was a big spillover into Whitesboro. Among the first things sought by those visiting the area is Whitesboro's diverse cuisine, boasting some of the best Italian, Greek, and Lebanese dishes, all brought by immigrants. Whiteboro's proximity to the Adirondacks allows residents to enjoy camps, summer homes, swimming, and winter activities. The rolling hills and beautiful scenery are part of the charm that still attracts people to the area today.

Cloaked in anonymity, Frances Miriam Whitcher wrote brilliant social satire in the mid-1800s, exposing hypocrisy and pretentiousness in village society throughout the Northeast. This new book demonstrates that her sardonic, antisentimental wit represents an entirely different strain in women's writing of the time, earning her an important role in the emergence of a distinctive tradition of women's humor in America. Whitcher was the first American woman to write a highly popular series of humorous sketches in the tradition of the Yankee yarn-spinner. Whitcher's sketches were featured in Neal's Saturday Gazette and Godey's Lady's Book. Her collection of sketches, published posthumously as The Widow Bedott Papers, earned best-seller status from the date of its publication in 1855 until the end of the 1880s, when "The Widow Bedott" was played on the New York stage by Neil Burgess. Although widely read, much admired, and very influential in her own era, Whitcher has until recently been virtually forgotten in ours. Morris's study should help to rescue her writings and perhaps earn for Whitcher a new readership.

The Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography is the first comprehensive encyclopedia of world photography up to the beginning of the twentieth century. It sets out to be the standard, definitive reference work on the subject for years to come. Its coverage is global – an important ‘first’ in that authorities from all over the world have contributed their expertise and scholarship towards making this a truly comprehensive publication. The Encyclopedia presents new and ground-breaking research alongside accounts of the major established figures in the nineteenth century arena. Coverage includes all the key people, processes, equipment, movements, styles, debates and groupings which helped photography develop from being ‘a solution in search of a problem’ when first invented, to the essential communication tool, creative medium, and recorder of everyday life which it had become by the dawn of the twentieth century. The sheer breadth of coverage in the 1200 essays makes the Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography an essential reference source for academics, students, researchers and libraries worldwide.

Marcy is not a town but rather a township made up of several hamlets, Stittville being the largest. These hamlets originated with groups of various religions and nationalities, such as Welch, Methodist, and Baptist. The one thing they all had in common was their desire to survive and prosper. The answer was in farming and all the hard work that had to be done every day. In the late 1850s, everything changed when the railroad came to town. Travel outside the farm fences became easy and enjoyable. Residents could catch the train and, in only 20 minutes, be in Utica, a whole different world, with stores and merchandise unlike anything on the farm. Today the farming has all but gone, and Marcy is largely a bedroom community with a mixture of small shops, electricity and water distribution systems, and higher education institutions.
