Many types of social reform movements took shape in the first half of the 19th century. There were Protestant religious movements, which were anti-Catholic. In Franklin County, Massachusetts, there were Mission, Bible, Tract, Education and Sunday School societies. These societies held their annual meetings on October 11, 1837 to appoint officers and get financial reports. All the officers elected were men, though women played a large role in the organization of the societies as well as the day to day activities. The Gazette & Mercury was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from June 27, 1837 to July 13, 1841, when it changed its name to the Gazette & Courier.
