In the late 1700s and early 1800s, a religious revival known as the Second Great Awakening rippled across the nation. Like the earlier Great Awakening almost a century before, Americans joined churches in record numbers, and many embraced the belief that they could achieve salvation by accepting God and performing benevolent works. This fervor led some Americans to join the causes of temperance, abolition, and women's rights. Was the Second Great Awakening more notable as a religious revival or as a social reform movement?

This eBook examines the Second Great Awakening and delves into the pro and con arguments that surrounded it. It includes a timeline, primary sources, a bibliography, and a "Learn More About" chapter with more information on the topic.
