Evangelical Christianity, and Protestantism more generally, were in decline in the second half of the eighteenth century. After 1800, however, a great boom in numbers and energy of evangelical Christianity occurred. Disestablishment created a religious climate unique to the United States. Denominations with a more traditional, “Old World” structure experienced difficulty in maintaining adherents, while populist groups like the Methodists and Baptists flourished.
