1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Age 3

Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.
1832 · The Scottish Reform Act

Age 5

The Scottish Reform Act was introduced by Parliament that introduced changes to the election laws in Scotland.
