Religion and the Founding of the American Republic | Exhibitions This exhibition demonstrates that many of the colonies that in 1776 became the United States of America were settled by men and women of deep religious convictions who in the seventeenth century crossed the Atlantic Ocean to practice their faith freely. That the religious intensity of the original settlers would diminish to some extent over time was perhaps to be expected, but new waves of eighteenth century immigrants brought their own religious fervor across the Atlantic and the nation's first major religious revival in the middle of the eighteenth century injected new vigor into American religion. The result was that a religious people rose in rebellion against Great Britain in 1776, and that most American statesmen, when they began to form new governments at the state and national levels, shared the convictions of most of their constituents that religion was, to quote Alexis de Tocqueville's observation, indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions.

Beyond the History Textbook: Exploring History: Conclusion I hope this has been an illuminating experience for everyone! I also hope that we have seen that history is much more than the condensed "version" we see in the form of textbooks. From this day forward, my sincere wish is that you see history through a variety of historical lenses that allow you to approach a theme or event or controversy with a degree of skepticism and objectivity, remembering that there is always more than one "story". Let's recap the main points and concepts we learned in this WebQuest: 1) We now know why we study history and its importance and relevance today 2) We now know what historiography is and its value as a conceptual tool in the study and writing of history 3) We examined several issues in United States history from the perspective of regional history, i.e., from the point of view of Texas 4) We traced the evolution of Texas' development as a Spanish, Mexican, Independent Republic, and eventual state of the United States.
