1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Age 2

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.
1830 · The Oregon Trail

Age 2

Many people started their 2,170-mile West trek to settle the land found by Louis and Clark. They used large-wheeled wagons to pack most of their belongings and were guided by trails that were made by the previous trappers and traders who walked the area. Over time the trail needed annual improvements to make the trip faster and safer. Most of Interstate 80 and 84 cover most of the ground that was the original trail.
1830 · The Indian Removal Act

Age 2

In a negotiation with the southern Native American Tribes, Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act which exchanged lands with the Native Tribes. The Act was supported mainly in the south, but the tribes showed resistance and ultimately were forcibly removed from their lands. The relocation of the tribes was later known as the Trail of Tears.
