The new democratic age of the 1820s, ’30s, and ’40s not only witnessed the advent of universal white male suffrage but also a strong impulse for social reform, which was often supported by those denied access to the ballot. What drove the impulse behind the reform in general and with particular movements like abolitionism, feminism, temperance, and institution building?
