Introduction: The 1820’s, 1830’s, and 1840’s gave rise to various reform groups which attempted to address a number of growing social issues of the Age of Jackson. Slavery was expanding west into the Lower South on the booming economy of cotton. A thriving textile factory system led to way to industrialism in the North and a rising labor class. The Second Great Awakening captured middle class Americans in revivalism and social responsibility, which fueled reforming zeal. Abolitionism, the Temperance Movement, and the Women’s Rights Movement were three important reform issues of the Antebellum Period. The press was a powerful tool to reach the American public with an appeal for reform.
