Perhaps the largest difference between the mental world of the mid-19th century and that current today is the utter centrality of religion—in America, overwhelmingly, dissenting Protestant religion—to their world view. While many today would not go out of their way to read tracts and other religious literature, anyone who hopes to understand and interpret mid-19th century people should do so.
