PLEASE HELP!!! I KNOW THIS ISN'T IN THE RIGHT SUBJECT BUT NO ONE WILL HELP ME IN HISTORY!!! The picture above depicts a camp meeting during the Second Great Awakening. Which of the following best describes what happened at these meetings? These inspirational meetings were designed to encourage people in different denominations (Baptist, Methodist, etc.) to come together as a single denomination. These religious meetings, held outdoors and in tents, were believed to inspire people to confess their sins and examine their personal religious beliefs.

    These meetings, attended by men and women, inspired people to discuss personal feelings and goals about issues like slavery and women's rights. These lively meetings were a way of building community relationships and establishing leaders by allowing everyone to openly discuss goals and ideas.

    Pretty sure that you're supposed to know something about the Second Great Awakening, and that will allow you to choose the correct answer...

    I read about camp meetings in Wikipedia and that gave me the answer of A but then I'm not sure, I want to double check

    I think C and D are not correct. I'm a bit undecided on A vs. B. My take is that they did encourage people to come together, but I'm not sure that they encouraged them to come together as a single denomination...

    I have a slight preference for B, but honestly, I don't know for sure.

    I was kind of deciding between those too, but then I read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camp_meeting and it said towards the end of paragraph one something about uniting, ya know?

    Sure! Always curious to know when I can't figure it out. It's funny, so many kids have an "I'm not going to ever use this in life" attitude about doing say math problems, but I'm trying to imagine where knowing the correct answer to THIS question is ever going to matter to someone later on!

    Okay. I did have an acquaintance in high school long, long ago who went to some sort of revival meetings for days on end. I just thought she was kind of nuts, maybe if I had asked more questions I would be in a position to answer more definitively now!

    @whpalmer4 I submitted the test and got 70% which is not bad!! I do online school so this grade is actually pretty good, but I got the answer we were working on wrong which makes me think I should've went with B. They didn't give me the answer though, in case I want to retake it or something...

    Must have been B, then. I was about 55% sure B, 45% A, 0% C or D. I didn't see any mention of discussing goals, did you?

    Oh okay, haha & no I didn't.. :/ I just don't like the fact that most of the questions they ask you on tests have no relation to what they taught us in the lesson.. But there's nothing I can do about, lol @whpalmer4
