Website Spotlight: God in America

Website URL:

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.


I ask the students to work through the following links--at the appropriate time in the semester when the material is applicable:

I. Colonial Era

The Protestant Reformation

A New Adam (Puritan period)

The Pilgrims

John Winthrop

Interview with Professor Stephen Marini

The Puritans
Paul Boyer interview

Anne Hutchinson

Roger Williams

Jonathan Edwards

George Whitefield


II. Second Great Awakening

Charles Finney

James Finley (Circuit Rider)

Evangelicalism, Revivalism, and the Second Great Awakening


III. Slavery

Angelina and Sarah Grimke

Nat Turner

Frederick Douglass

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Sojourner Truth

Harriet Tubman

William Lloyd Garrison


IV. Reform

Lyman Beecher (Benevolent Empire)

Susan B. Anthony

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Lucretia Mott

Frances Willard (Women's Christian Temperance Union)
