Many colonists had left England for freedom of religion—now they fought England for freedom on all other counts. Sandwiched between the First and Second Great Awakenings, the American Revolution was still unavoidably religious. Preachers championed "the Cause" from their pulpits, patriots claimed the blessing of God's providence, and the founding fathers led the charge toward a free nation founded upon Judeo-Christian morality. 

  • Preaching insurrection and rebellion
