Antebellum Reform Movements
Transcript of Antebellum Reform Movements
The Second Great Awakening
The Second Great Awakening was a religious revival for Americans. Americans drank alcohol because milk and water weren't safe to drink. Since they would drink, being drunk was common and it didn't seem right to the women. They also thought God wasn't that important or they were to busy with other things like working. So purifying their lives and giving up sins were attempted to happen.
Campbell was a minister in the
Second Great Awakening. He made a religious reform movement, that was helped by his son Alexander
Campbell. That same movement
merged with the American
Restoration Movement. He talked about his believes on the Bible and the scriptures to the people. Thomas and his son made a group that called themselves the "Disciples of Christ".

Paul was not scared to do dramatic
tactics to express her feelings. She started out with the NAWSA, but was frustrated with the rules so she formed the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage with Lucy Burns. She added more rights for women to the U.S. Constitution. Alice Paul was so committed to get women equal rights she was arrested on several occasions.
Anthony was and still is an honored women. She even had a portrait on dollar coins. Susan tried to speak out during a temperance convention and people didn't take her serious, that made her realize that no one would take a woman serious in politics if they couldn't vote. She started to travel and petition for women's rights ever since that moment. Stanton and Anthony made a weekly newspaper called The Revolution. They founded the NWSA in 1869. Anthony with the help of Stanton published volumes of History of Woman Suffrage. She met President Theodore Roosevelt to talk about an amendment that was for letting women vote.
Give women full equality like owning property and jobs. (starting with voting)
Stone was a rebellious women. She was in the
Women's National Loyal League, the American Equal Rights Association, and the New Jersey Woman Suffrage Association. She had a meeting for the first national Women's Rights Convention. Also she was the first woman from MA to earn a bachelor's degree.
