This portrait is a representation of Samuel Davies, a Presbyterian minister who preached the Awakening in Virginia.

Most accounts of the Great Awakening focus predominantly on the revivals in the middle colonies and particularly in New England. The South was the scene of revival too, however. Whitefield preached in southern cities, and Presbyterian Samuel Davies led a notable awakening in Virginia. Even farther south, in the Carolinas, was another phase of the Great Awakening, the Sandy Creek Revival.

In this document, the Presbyterian minister Samuel Davies describes the congregations that he preached to in Virginia. Davies tells how he traveled to widely scattered congregations of believers in the back country of the Southern Colonies.
