The Millerites and a Private Second Coming
by Maureen Thalmann

Upstate New York farmer and amateur student of the Bible, William Miller, set off our nation’s largest mass delusion, when he predicted the world would end on March 21, 1844. Astute public relations transformed Millerism from an obscure regional movement to a national campaign. In Michigan’s Avon Township, a local farmer’s story highlight’s the movement’s reach and effect, creating a scandal that shook the area.
