Stones, Dirt, and Pieces of Dead Cat

"I was honored today with having a few stones, dirt, rotten eggs, and pieces of dead cat thrown at me"
George Whitefield

America’s Great Awakening was sparked largely by Whitefield’s preaching tour of 1739–40. Though only 25 years old, the evangelist took America by storm. Whitefield’s farewell sermon on Boston Common drew 23,000 people—more than Boston’s entire population. It was probably the largest crowd that had ever gathered in America. Ben Franklin once estimated that Whitefield, without any amplification, could be heard by more than 30,000 people. About 80 percent of all American colonists heard him preach at least once. This man was a true evangelist as seen by his statement above. 
I don't know if any of us could imagine reaching this many people without a sound system.
