The Burned-Over District and the Writings of Faye Huntington for children in the late 1800s

This talk started with a focus on Faye Huntington (pseudonym of Theodocia Maria Toll Foster, my great-grandmother), who lived almost all of her life in Verona, NY. In order to understand her writings, more than 40 books for juveniles and many many short stories, I realized that I needed to understand the Evangelical movement of the early 1800s that is popularly referred to as either the Second Great Awakening or the Burned-over District. This talk presents my preliminary ideas of this linkage– between the goals of religious leaders in Upstate NY in the early 1800s and of Faye’s Christian temperance-oriented messages just prior to 1900.
