In a few places I've seen claims that Jonathan Edwards (1703–1758) believed in the imminence of Christ's return. For example:

[Jonathan Edwards] was convinced that the world was going to the dogs and that it was running out of time, that Jesus was going to come any minute. (source)

And according to Bruce Shelley, Edwards thought that the US would play a significant role:

Jonathan Edwards even preached that America would be the scene of the coming millennium! (Church History in Plain Language, 359)

I'd like to know where exactly in his writings Jonathan Edwards expresses views like these – the imminent coming of Jesus (within Edwards' lifetime?) and the location/characteristics of the millennium.
