Excerpt from Correct View of That Part of the United States: Which Lies West of the Allegany Mountains, With Regard to Religion and Morals It appears that these six counties have a population of 1 36 ministers, 63 churches supplied by them with preaching, and 21 vacant societies, all of the Presbyterian order. It is evident from this, that most of the preachers have to supply two or three societies. This district is not in very pressing need of missionary assistance, compared with other parts of the country, except it be the counties of Somerset and Greene, which have a population of nearly inhabitants, and not one church supplied with preaching.

The principal objects of their Mission were - to preach the gospel to the destitute, - to explore the country and learn its moral and religious state, - and to promote the establishment of Bible Societies, and of other religious and charitable institutions. The friends of religion, who are desirous to learn what were the exertions and success of the Missionaries, are referred to their printed Reports, designated as follows: - "A correct view of that part of the United States, which lies west of the Allegany mountains, with regard to religion and morals.

This is a new edition of the radical social history of America from Columbus to the present. This powerful and controversial study turns orthodox American history upside down to portray the social turmoil behind the "march of progress". Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, A People's History is the only volume to tell America's story from the point of view of - and in the words of - America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers. As historian Howard Zinn shows, many of America's greatest battles - the fights for fair wage, an eight-hour workday, child-labor laws, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, women's rights, racial equality - were carried out at the grassroots level, against bloody resistance. Covering Christopher Columbus's arrival through the Clinton years A People's History of the United States, which was nominated for the American Book Award in 1981, is an insightful analysis of the most important events in US history.
