Abstract

Samuel H. Smith lived at a period of time when American society was undergoing great change in its economic, religious, and social institutions. Increased transportation facilities provided new opportunities for the common man. There was increased mobility on the part of Americans and the West offered many new opportunities. A renewed interest in religion and the repudiation of existing Christian institutions were characteristic of that period of time.
