The Second Great Awakening: Mac Hall


  • James Monroe:   “Good evening my fellow American’s, I am James Monroe and I am your Democratic-Republican leader in the 1816 presidential election. I know with many of you, me being the fourth potential President being from Virginia is an issue. I plan to give the top 4 cabinet positions to a representative from the North East, South, West, and Mid-Atlantic Coast. Thus far, my political experience includes being Secretary of State and Secretary of War under President James Madison, as well as a diplomat under Thomas Jefferson. Holding such positions has led me to many important events such as helping to carry out the Louisiana Purchase, fighting in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. I plan on doing all I can to prevent any more invasions and to extend the countries natural defenses. Finally, I plan to explore more Westward and to attempt to stretch our country to the Pacific. Making our country reach from sea to shining sea.”


  • Alice Martin: “My name is Alice Martin and I support James Monroe. James is a true patriot, having fought in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. He is a leader who wants independence and change for our country and all people living here, women and slaves included. Monroe’s beliefs include religious reform and women's rights. Not only does Monroe want to try and abolish slavery, he is also encouraging women to step out of the domestic sphere of their homes and children. He supports rights for slaves and women and I believe that electing James Monroe as President will bring a second great awakening.”
