Using Timothy Dwight's 1801 address to a congregation at New Haven as your primary source, discuss the concept of moral revival in nineteenth-century America. Select two passages (examples) from Dwight’s sermon to analyze and consider how he communicates the need for and strategies to achieve collective moral revival . You should relate this discussion back to what you have learned about the topic from your textbook.

Responses should be between 500 and 600 words in length, double- spaced. Please submit your essays to Turnitin by Friday, February 26 and bring a hard copy to class on the due date.
