Paine Ball notice
Description: This broadside was produced in response to a prayer meeting that predicted that terrible disasters would take place during The Paine Ball, a dance to be held in the Town Hall of Salem, Ohio. In the notice, the managers of the ball declare that they have formed a vigilance committee to be on alert to prevent any disturbances to the dance. This notice is one example of the types of conflicts that existed between evangelical religion and popular amusements in 19th-century America. View on Ohio Memory.
