As part of "The Firelands of Ohio" Erie County had its origin in the Revolutionary War. Connecticut towns were burned in the historic raids of Benedict Arnold and the British General Tryon. 500,000 acres in the Western Reserve were awarded by the Connecticut Assembly in 1792 to indemnify the fire-sufferers, therefore known and "The Firelands;" consisting of what is now Huron and Erie Counties, plus Ruggles and Danbury Townships.
