    • Early 1800s; usually 1810s to as late as the 1840s • Most known leader: Charles Grandison Finney (has appeared in related DBQ essays) • Directly influenced by increasing political participation of common citizens • Plays a direct role in the antebellum reform movements, especially abolitionism (but also including temperance, prison reform, and women’s rights – remember the Mock Exam FRQ?) • Popular in the backcountry; especially the southern Appalachian regions • Again, slaveholders tried to prevent slaves from attending; eventually had to come up with Christian reasons for slavery • Role of the Second Great Awakening on the frontier? As people move away from traditional homelands, they must search for a sense of community • This is really where newer sects gain increased membership: Methodists, Baptists • Also, very different sects emerge: Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists
