Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Susan Nye Hutchison (1790-1867) was one of many teachers to venture south across the Mason-Dixon Line in the Second Great Awakening. From 1815 to 1841, she kept journals about her career, family life, and encounters with slavery. Drawing on these journals and hundreds of other documents, this book explores the significance of education in transforming American society in the early national period. During this era, women often struggled to balance career ambitions with social conventions about female domesticity.
