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. In New England evangelical enthusiasm led to the formation of missionary societies that sent clergy to foreign lands to bring bibles and religion to non-Christians. The Greek Revolution against the Ottoman Empire began a year before this article was written. The second paragraph speaks of people being "missionary mad" when they start advocating conflict so missionaries can have access to that region. 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.
