Describe how the Second Great Awakening helped change social life during the early to mid-1800s
The Second Great Awakening was a religious revival in the US from the 1790s to the 1830s where citizens across the country found themselves becoming more evangelized in their religious beliefs. In their evangelization, many found themselves tearing down the hierarchical nature of Christianity and focusing on improving themselves and their positions and in response, many new denominations of Christianity were formed during this time to meet the new ways of societal thinking.

How did European interaction with the world, namely the Americas and Africa, help shape the prosperity of the continent post-1550?
During the 1500s and after, Europe began to gradually explore the seas before becoming the dominating leader of trade in the 17th and 18th centuries. Sea voyages to the American and African continents (in hopes of access to Asia in the beginning) opened Europe to a world of new products and raw materials. New access to raw materials allowed for easier and cheaper creation of finished goods. The boom in then access of finished products and the raw materials used to make them helped cause the growth of commercial activities and financial practices including the creation of joint-stock companies, triangular trade, and the founding of colonies based upon mercantilism. Large scale agriculture, with help of the creation of new farming techniques, production tools, and African slavery, became more feasible during this time as the raw materials would be needed to be traded through these new systems. This helped the general economy shift from one reliant on cottage industries to a more industrial economy and the development of capitalism.
