Summary In the half century following independence, a fight within Protestantism, a contest over the colonization of the frontier, reshaped American nationalism in ways that transformed American political culture. Fear of the dynamism and authority of popular, frontier religious movements led elite Northeastern Protestants to found the first missionary organizations in American history. Using technological innovations, the missionary organizations functioned as novel nationbuilding organizations.
