2nd Great Awakening was fueled by millennialism and Arminianism (Challenges views on pre destination). People begin looking at themselves because of the view that you can lose or gain your way into heaven causing all sorts of communities and actions driven by people who wanted to stop smoking, alcohol etc. Also people begin looking at slavery (Abolitionism), the treatment of mentally disabled people. Multitudes of different religions popped up and most people became converts of one kind or another. Mostly Methodist and Baptist. Different Communities were founded to be homes for outcasts such as the mormons who founded salt lake city. Free public education was founded in 1825 - 1850. There was a form of AA called the temperance society to help people with drinking problems. Women gained more rights and freedom. Invention and science were becoming more common and the arts were becoming more common as well.

Clay supports a bill to build a road in his state. Jackson vetoes the bill because he does not like Clay, and he uses the argument that federal money cannot be used for roads that are not interstate.
Jackson aligns with webster to attempt to nullify the attempt to cancel the tariff by south. He sends the U.S military to south carolina to collect the tariff because the state refused. This happens because although jackson is aligned with the south, the south is threatening the integrity of the U.S and therefore they are an enemy

People from the south went west into mexico and ignore their laws. Mexico fights them but they win. Texas becomes a small state with plans to be annexed by the U.S. This would ignite sectionalism and jackson does not allow this.
