A Shopkeepers Millennium reviewPaul E Johnson the author of A Shopkeepers Millennium inthe book Johnson looks at the society of Rochester at a whole and how it was affected from the revivals from 1815 through 1837 Johnson takes a look at certain documents from the city of Rochester as well as church records politics society and the economy He explains the significance of the revivals and why they took place throughout the text Johnson feels that the revivals had little to do with family breakdowns and isolations In the book Johnson shows the relationship between Rochester citizens and the citys new industrial expansion during the first and second great awakeningIn the first chapter Johnson tries to create an understanding of the economy during that time period He described the current economic situation of that time period well enough to be understood by the reader In the beginning of this chapter he talks about Finney and then throughout that chapter he fades away and goes to an earlier time period Hell then bring Finney back up later in the chapter Johnson will talk about Finney and his impact on the revivals The next three chapters in the book talked about the society politics and impasse of Rochester In the chapter about Society Johnson outlines the merchants household and how it formed the basis for the old elites point of view of society For example the merchants had their workers live with them and the workers were basically a part of the merchants family At that time most of the work was done in the merchants house But when Finney arrived the working man left the homes of their employers and the merchants started to become capitalists They separated themselves both in a social status way and by their habitats On page 48 Johnson notes that through the 1820s the workers were living in neighborhoods away from their employers Another major topic in the section
