Before the Civil War, upstate New York earned itself a nickname: the burned-over district. African Americans were few in upstate New York, so this work focuses on reformers in three predominately white communities. At the cutting edge of revolutions in transportation and industry, these ordinary citizens tried to maintain a balance between stability and change.
