I’m proud of this web essay I wrote for The Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, offering an immersive experience of a Billy Sunday revival, and aimed at a general (or classroom) audience. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it was like to see Billy Sunday and experience one of his revival meetings, this is just about the closest you’re going to get. Thanks to Chris Nichols for commissioning this!
