The Second Great Awakening in the United States, which took place over about 30 years from the 1790s to the 1820s, ended with the work of evangelist Charles Finney.  Finney would serve for a time as president of Oberlin College in Ohio and was said to have converted over 500,000 people.  He had a conversion experience on October 10, 1821 in the forest near his home.
