An investigation that shows the impact of manifest destiny and domesticity on women and non-white men in nineteenth-century America American culture was firmly undergirded by two dominant rhetorics during the nineteenth century: manifest destiny and domesticity. The first celebrated a divinely ordained spread of democracy, individualism, capitalism, and civilization throughout the North American continent. The second codified "natural" differences and duties of American men and women. While the two rhetorics were touted as "universal" in their application and appeal, in actuality both assumed a belief in masculine Anglo-Saxon American superiority. The triumph of the nation could be accomplished only through the concomitant removal, acculturation, or elimination of non-white peoples and through a careful circumscription of white women. The rhetorics not only were linked through ethnocentrism and misogyny but also were connected through their reliance on the Protestant belief system and on the church itself. Yet, curiously, despite their exclusion from the Protestant rhetorics of manifest destiny and domesticity, the nineteenth century featured a remarkable growth in the conversion of women and non-white men to the Protestant faith. Indeed, by mid-century both groups had made significant inroads into select leadership positions within the Protestant denominations and had organized themselves in Protestant-based groups to seek major social reforms. Why did women and non-white men seek to join a dominant religion that in many ways set out to limit and oppress them? This book responds to that question by exploring the actual words and rhetorical choices made by some of the most progressive Protestant white, African American, and Native American thinkers of the era: Olaudah Equiano, William Apess, Catharine Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Sojourner Truth, and Amanda Berry Smith. It argues that American Protestantism was both prohibitive and constitutive, offering its followers an expedient, acceptable but limited means for assuming social and political power and for forming a mutually empathetic, relational notion of self while at the same time foreclosing the possibility for more radical roles and social change. Carolyn A. Haynes is Director of the Honors and Scholars Program at Miami University of Ohio.
