The Second Great Awakening was the reform efforts of the prewar era where people left sin behind them and focused on a righteous lifestyle.
Hello, I am Charles Grandison Finney
Charles Grandison Finney and Peter Cartwright played important roles in the newly religious time.
Yes, I know you are. I am also a minister like yourself. Maybe not quite so well known but one like yourself sent on the same mission . Let us go inside.
You have inspired so many, how did you get your start?
I was going into law but I was converted and decided to change my life path. I found the most success in Rochester, the "burned over district" was aflame with religious fervor.
I'm what they call a circuit rider. I spread the word like a minister but I do not have a fixed congregation.
I'm fimiliar, you do some important work. How did you come to do that? No offense but it doesn't seem your style.
I was actually a gambler and a sinner, but I was converted and found religion. I spread the word to everyone, slaves too.
Noble work I'll say.
Both men worked throughout their lives to fight for relion and religious rights. Finney is one of the best known ministers of this era. Cartwright played an imporatant role within the uneducated and slave group.
