Merica from Mercantilism to Egalitarian

Trace the strain of egalitarianism in American life from John Winthropes Lay Sermon to the Log Cabin campaign of 1840. What important events would you say impacted this development? How did changes in perspective become manifest?
Remember to focus on Winthropes idea of mercantalism and Adam Smith.

Do not use too much quote. Also incorporate ideas from the book Shoemaker and the Tea Party.
