The first Missouri State Library was established by law on January 22, 1829. This law was created due to the large amount of public documents which had been collected in the office of Missouri's secretary of state. The library included documentation of the actions of the Missouri senate and house. The documents were cataloged and made available to the public. The public had access to any of the books in the library from sunup to sundown on any day except Sunday.
1830 · The Second Great Awakening

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.
