A plea for the west
Teen takes plea deal in death of nephew in west
Lyman Beecher was a Presbyterian minister, leading revivalist, and social reformer who helped create the “benevolent empire” and gave religion in America its distinctive voluntary stamp.
Beecher, the son of a blacksmith, attended Yale University, where he was swayed by university President Timothy Dwight. In 1799, he was ordained as a Presbyterian minister and plunged into the Second Great Awakening’s theological fervor. Beecher, who broke away from strict Calvinist theology, accepted that humans were deeply immoral, but he also taught that they had the power to receive God’s grace if they chose to do so.
Beecher became the pastor of the Litchfield Congregational Church in 1810. The Congregational Church was the state’s existing church, and it maintained its favored position even as other state churches were disbanded. Connecticut, on the other hand, made the difficult decision in 1818 to sever relations between church and state. Beecher argued vehemently against the move and bemoaned the day it was made: “It was the darkest day I’d ever seen. The odium heaped on the ministry was unfathomable. The damage done to the cause of Christ, as we thought at the time, was irreversible.”

In this paper, I’ll look at Lyman Beecher’s A Plea for the West and how it relates to his views on immigration. I’m particularly interested in seeing how supportive the author is of nativism.
On this account, I will begin by defining nativism and identifying its various motivations; chapter 2.2 will then trace the evolution of the philosophy as well as its political manifestations from the founding of the United States to the present. Chapter three provides some background information on the author and the time period in which he lived, which I believe is important for a better understanding of the primary source. The study of A Plea for the West, which constitutes the bulk of my work, will be presented in Chapter 4: I’ll start by describing the author’s vision of the American West’s great potential as well as the challenges he sees it facing. Then I’ll look into the author’s attitude toward immigration in general, and specifically Catholic immigration, in his work. What motivates him to embrace nativism, and which of its complicated theories does he really believe in? Finally, in light of the understanding of democracy that Lyman Beecher promotes in his work, I will discuss the solution he suggests for the issue of immigration in American society.
