Excerpt from Centennial General Catalogue of the Trustees, Officers, Professors and Alumni of Union Theological Seminary in Virginia: 1807-1907

The Presbyterian Church in America was composed origin ally of emigrants from Great Britain and Ireland, and for many years the ministers of their various congregations were drawn from beyond the seas. As the Church grew, however, and the population of the country increased, the supply thus obtained proved to be inadequate and the necessity for a native ministry became more and more apparent. Academies and colleges were accordingly established from time to time during the 18th century at various places, such as Princeton, Lexington and hampden-sidney; and the candidates educated in these institutions received their theological training by serving a sort of apprenticeship under approved divines here and there throughout the country. But this plan, also, was presently seen to be inadequate, especially after the great revivals of 1799-1804, and it became apparent that the only way in which the demand could be met was to organize regular institutions for theological education.
