Ivan Ivanov Wright APUSH 4 September 19 th , 2010 Unit 2 outline A. Social Structure 1. Family 1. The families of the era were rapidly growing, with over 2 million new Americans between 1700 and 1775. Widows and orphans were common because of the commonality of armed conflict. 2. Farm and Town Life; The Economy 1. Most of the settlers were small farmers who could grow enough food to get by fairly comfortably. The South had most of these farmers because the soil there was much softer and more fertile. In the North, city life was slightly more prevalent, because of the concentrated population and rocky soil. The towns were quite unsanitary, with trash and animals in the streets. B. Culture 1. The Great Awakening 1. This was a drastic change of the religious beliefs of the era. Started by the fiery sermons of Jonathan Edwards, the Great Awakening lead to much more religious zeal, which had been waning among the colonists. A certain amount of passionate absurdity was involved as well, with people rolling in the snow because of their religious feelings and preachers screaming and hollering. 2. The American Mind 1. The American became more and more educated throughout the 1700’s. At first, the Northern colonies were most interested in education because of their religious devotions. However, as the century wore on the schools spread to the South as well.
