Baptists, Quakers, and Independent Church Periodicals, 1797-1881

This collection presents the growth of the Baptist church, whose first American church was founded in Providence, Rhode Island in 1638. Baptist churches flourished as the colonies and the nation grew. As this collection demonstrates,the history of the Baptist church and the history of America are intimately related.
