AMH 2097 Notes Exam 1 terms Mary Wollstonecraft:  women’s advocate for women’s rights. In which she argues that women are not  naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men  and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason. Richard Allen: was a minister, educator, writer, and one of America's most active and influential black  leaders. In 1794 he founded the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME), the first independent black  denomination in the United States. He opened his first AME church in 1794 in Philadelphia,  Pennsylvania.  Elected the first bishop of the AME Church in 1816, Allen focused on organizing a denomination where  free blacks could worship without racial oppression and where slaves could find a measure of  dignity. He worked to upgrade the social status of the black community, organizing Sabbath  schools to teach literacy and promoting national organizations to develop political strategies. Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World: David Walker (September 28, 1796 – August 6, 1830) [N  1]  was an outspoken African­American abolitionist and anti­slavery activist. His mother was free and his  father was a slave. Therefore, he was free. In 1829, while living in Boston, Massachusetts, he  published An Appeal to the Coloured Citizens of the World,  a call for black unity and self­help in the  fight against oppression and injustice.   Manifest Destiny: westward expansion to the west of the states. The expansion was seen as the inabilities  of the anglo­saxon race  Free Soil: being against the westward expansion. Wanted to see free land for people that went west.  Potato Famine: 1845­1851. New wave of immigration from Ireland to united states. They were Irish and  catholic and they changed Irish and American society when they immigrated. Their mass immigration  sparked a new form of temperance, moral reform, education in schools. The people of Ireland experience  blight of potato, so the Irish lost their standard source of food. Other food grown such as corn, wheat, was sold to England. The wave of migration included older people and children. The poor people could not  afford passage so they did not migrate. These people traveled to either New York or Boston usually  because it was the cheapest port. Famine came in Ireland because when a landowner died, their sons spilt  all their land and that means the land got smaller and smaller so they changed the law that one son could  inherit the land.  “Bridgets:” these were Irish women who were seen as clumsy, unattractive, man crazy, unintelligent.  They would be the people who clean, cook, take care of children. They took on many different roles.  Gottfried Duden: attorney from Germany who wrote for German audiences about his experiences in  Missouri. Hugely influential and convinced tons of people to come to America. Economic opportunities  from Germans to America. Sent prison inmates to united states from Germany. Germans wanted Missouri to be brought in as a German state. Brought in Spanish immigrants and lots of Jewish people  th Reform Judaism: movement started in Germany but brought to the united states. In the 18 and 19   century. Jewish people were segregated from living communities. They became more integrated in  western society. They help their services in the main language they spoke and included organ music.  Reform Jews also encouraged Jewish people to wear westernized clothing. Did not follow dietary  restrictions and sat as families instead of separated by sex.    “Forty­eighters”: people who generally rejected the role of religion. They were involved in 1848  revolution. They had a huge impact on the culture of U.S. they were trying to lessen the religion and  wanted Germans to unite in u.s. most Germans were catholic.
