Jedidiah Morse (1761–1826), orthodox Congregational clergyman of Connecticut, founded The Panoplist (1805), a periodical to combat the growing Unitarianism of New England and elsewhere. He was interested in missionary work among the Indians, his visits to various tribes resulting in the important Report to the Secretary of War …on Indian Affairs (1822).
