The Great Awakening
"The first Great Awakening spread throughout the colonies." Jonathan Edwards started holding religious gatherings as what he called revivals in New England. At these meetings
preachers
gave warnings of little faith and intense speeches.
George Whitfield was a important traveling preacher. He started to travel
around the colonies in 1739. When he preached, people who were poor, rich
and middle class all listened.

Introduction

Religion was important to American colonists'. In 1730 a few
protestants
started to make new thoughts on religion. They thought religion should be about strong feelings.

Effects of The Great
Awakening
The first great awakening brought many colonists to the new religion. As well as having a new religion, there are always people who don't agree.
The
old lights
were people who were not happy with changing to a new religion. On the other hand, there were
new lights
who were perfectly fine with the change of religion.
Conclusion
The great awakening caused many people to go to a different religion and practice different prayers and follow different roles. There were New Lights who agreed with the revivals, and Old Lights who wouldn't think of it. Many of the christian groups wanted African Americans to join them.
MAJOR CHRISTIAN GROUPS:
Catholic
