    Thanks for an entertaining and educational piece! I’m always amazed at the religious awakening that was happening in the upstate area in the early 1800’s. We were not created in a bubble. Your knowledge and presentation has added to the many whirling and changing colors that are my own bubble of understanding! thanks.
