2 Second Great Awakening Second Great Awakening began in the early 1800s. Protestant preachers believed Americans became immoral and it contributed to the country's failings. These preachers were revivalists because they wanted to revive the role of religion. They used outdoor services, normally in tents called revivals. Charles Grandison Finney was one of the most influential. He was an evangelical (Strong emotion and attract converts). Second Great Awakening Cont Tensions between separation of church and state rose. African Americans were welcome at revivals. They formed their own churches known as the African Methodist Episcopal (AME). Religion offered promise and freedom. This period also led to Joseph Smith who spoke and wrote of visions he had and founded the Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). In New England, Puritans churches began to see God as a trinity and formed the Unitarians. Non-Protestants Most of the preachers of Second Great Awakening were Protestant and more than half of all Americans were as well. Many Americans persecuted the Mormons. They had political power and were chased out of many communities. Smith declared he was going to run for president and was murdered. Brigham Young led them to Utah. Catholics also faced harsh discrimination. Protestants did not understand who like the pope. Also faced high poverty rates. Jewish people also faced discrimination and could not hold political office. Utopias Transcendentalists Utopian communities were settlements in which people were trying to achieve a perfect community. New Harmony in Indians sought to have a cooperative society. Attracted 1,000 people. The shakers also set up communities, they had men and women live in separate housing, no marriage and only grew if people joined. Transcendentalists developed a new way to look at humanity, nature and God. They believed they could transcend or go beyond their senses to learn about the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson was one of the leaders. He talked about how the universe and the individual interact. Henry David Thoreau was famous for his essay Civil Disobedience. He believed a person must keep their conscience even if it meant breaking the law. Refused to pay taxes because they supported war, was jailed. DBQ Activity

Bellwork Crash Course Westward expansion Introduction Crash Course Spanish Borderlands Moving West Spanish and Indians are settling New Mexico Spain had to build more defenses in order to defend its settlements in New Mexico Few settlers moved into Texas California however thrived, Spanish sent Father Junipero Serra, a priest to help convert Indians in California. It was more successful because they lacked guns and horses.

9 Americans Look West Journey West Expansionists, people who favored territory growth, began to want New Mexico, Texas and used the term Manifest Destiny which was the belief that God wanted them to own all of North America. When Mexico won independence, America began early to trade with the, and opened the Santa Fe Trail, true between Missouri and New Mexico. Others went into the th Rockies seeking furs, these trappers were called Mountain Men. Missionaries began going to Oregon taking the Oregon Trail. Emigrants going out west would travel in groups for safety. (10-50 wagons and 50-1,000 people) The journey was a gamble for many. Leadership of Mormons passed to Brigham Young who led them to Great salt Lake in the west. Indians generally left the settlers alone yet the government passed the Treaty of Fort Laramie which bound Indians to settlements away from trails (1851). Go West, young man, and grow up with the country. Horace Greely Texas and the Mexican American War Texas Wins Independence Mexico offering land to American who will become Mexican citizens in hope to protect Texas. Stephen F Austin began to lead emigrants east of San Antonio and settled Austin. By 1835, Texas was home to 30,000 Americans. Santa Anna seized power in Mexico City and wanted a centralized government. Most in Texas wanted more autonomy, independent control, and did not like him. Texans rebelled and a year later gained independence no formed the Lone Star Republic Texas Wins Independence Cont 12 day battle at the Alamo here Santa Anna overran the fort and had the defenders killed. Anna thought it would scare the revolt but led by Sam Houston, the Texans led Santa Anna into a trap and crushed the Mexican Army. Santa Anna signed a treaty and recognized Texas independence.

10 Americans Debate Expansion The Mexican-American War Sam Houston was elected President of Texas and quickly ask the US to annex them. In 1844, James K Polk was elected President. He was an expansionist who devoutly believed in Manifest Destiny. Polk knew he needed to promise the North Oregon territory in order to annex Texas. North felt betrayed because Polk agreed with the British to split the Oregon Territory. Polk preferred war with Mexico. Annexation of Texas caused the border dispute to flare up. Polk sent General Zachary Taylor and troops to occupy the contested land. Polk drafted a declaration of war assuming it wouldn't be long. In May of 1846, a Mexico patrol clashed with US units. Taylor called congress to declare war. US had the military advantages. They won every major battle. About a year and a half of fighting before the US won. Effects of Territorial Expansion America Achieves Manifest Destiny California Gold Rush Effects of Gold Rush Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo forced Mexico to give up the Northern third of their country. Added 1.2 million square miles to the US. They just had to leave Mexico City and pay 15 million. Humiliated Mexicans. Gadsden purchase added even more land from Southern New Mexico and Southern Arizona. David Wilmot created the Wilmot Proviso which would ban slavery in lands won from Mexico. Divided the Congress sectionally, failed in Senate. Mass migration caused by the California Gold Rush had 80,000 Americans head to California. Called the forty-niners. Used cheap pans, picks and shovels..called placer mining. Later advancements allowed for hydraulic mining which employed jets of water to find the gold. Newcomers asserted dominance over California and discouraged Chinese from mining. They also terrorized and killed many native Americans. They wanted to join the union. Drafted a Constitution which did not mention African Americans. Union was 15 free and 15 slave at the time and this threw them into more debate and discord.
