The late 1820s and 1830s saw a Protestant religious revival called the Second Great Awakening which had a strong impact on American religion and reform. Revival meetings were held in many towns with the aim of bringing people into the church. This particular revival held in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, began in May and is being reported the end of September. There are also ongoing meetings in Lenox, Stockbridge, Hinsdale, and Washington--all nearby towns of Pittsfield. The Franklin Herald was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from January 7, 1812 to August 27, 1822. It changed its name to the Franklin Herald and Public Advertiser.
