age of reform

The reform movements that swept through American society after 1820 were reactions to a range of factors: the Second Great Awakening, the transformation of the American economy, industrialization, urbanization, and lingering agendas of the revolutionary period. As a way of introducing students to the variety of reform movements, this lesson looks at two reform movements—anti-slavery and women's rights.

The Second Great Awakening

The Second Great Awakening was a Christian revivalist movement that featured large revival meetings where zealous preachers expressed their ideas to the American public which sparked social reformation such as the Temperance Movement, Women's suffrage and the Anti-Slavery Abolitionist Movement. It also sought to awaken people to the plight of the less fortunate in society, such as slaves, convicts and the handicapped, and work to make their lives better.

  • women also played leading roles with men in reforming society
