The Kentucky Revival was part of the 2nd Great Awakening which began in 1792 in Britain and spread to the US soon afterwards.

A short history of the extraordinary outpouring of the Spirit of God in the Western States of America, known as the 'Revival in Ohio and Kentucky,' with a brief account of the beginnings of "Shakerism."

A description of revival scenes from the book

The first extraordinary appearances of the power of God, in the late revival, began about the close of the [18th] century, in Logan and Christian counties, on the waters of the Gasper and Red rivers. And in the spring of 1801 the same extraordinary work broke out in Madison county, upper part of Kentucky; of which I was an eye witness; and can, therefore, with greater confidence testify what I have heard, seen and felt....

Under such exhortations the people began to be afected in a very strange manner. At first they were taken with an inward throbbing of heart ; then with weeping and trembling; from that to crying out, in apparent agony of soul; falling down and swooning away, till every appearance of animal life was suspended, and the person appeared to be in a trance. From this state they would recover under different sensations, which will be more particularly noticed hereafter.....

It began on the 22nd of May, and continued four days and three nights. The scene was awful beyond description; the falling, crying out, praying, exhorting, singing, shouting, etc., exhibited such new, and striking evidences of a supernatural power, that few, if any, could escape without being affected. Such as tried to run from it, were frequently struck on the way, or impelled, by some alarming signal to return; and so powerful was the evidence on all sides, that no place was found for the obstinate sinner to shelter himself, but under the protection of prejudiced and bigoted professors. No circumstance at this meeting, appeared more striking, than the great numbers that fell on the third night: and to prevent their being trodden under foot by the multitude, they were collected together, and laid out in order, on two squares of the meeting-house; which, like so many dead corpses, covered a considerable part of the floor......

The author was a leader of the Western Camp Meeting Revival at the beginning of the 19th century.
