Puritans and the Apocalypse

PBS has a very informative piece about the Puritans, which explains precisely what the apocalypse meant to them. 

The earliest Puritan settlers are discussed, along with Jonathan Edwards and the Great Awakening. 

Cotton Matther is discussed as well.  You will remember that he plays a pertinent role in Sleepy Hollow as the source of all Ichabod Crane's scary witch stories.
