Azusa Street Revival


The Azusa Street Revival of 1906-1908 was where the early Pentecostal group became a social movment. Azusa street, over five years after the modern Pentecostal phenomenon began, created the defining narrative of the Pentecostal movement.

Unfortunately, for the purpose of looking for the draft cards of participants, the timing of Azusa Street was slightly too early and most male participants were too old in 1917 to be drafted. But, one participant who was found in the Apostolic Faith magazine was found in the first draft of 1917, who was requesting religious objector status on his draft card.
