This chapter describes rising tensions between Protestants and Catholics and the outbreak of religious violence in Ohio and Kentucky in the 1850s. It reveals intense efforts to proselytize across the Ohio River Valley, and the conflicts resulting from heated competition between Protestants and Catholics. This first chapter reveals the growth of powerful churches and missionary organizations based in urban Ohio and Kentucky, and especially in Cincinnati and Louisville. These Protestant and Catholic institutions sought to evangelize throughout the entire Ohio River valley. The chapter treats black and white Protestant revivals and evangelism, and reveals Catholics’ deep interest in fostering missions throughout the region.

Keywords:   Catholics, Protestants, Second Great Awakening, Revivalism, Violence, Evangelicalism, African Methodist Episcopal Church, Lyman Beecher, Samuel F. B. Morse
