"Orange Scott, 1800-1847, A Methodist evangelist & abolitionist. Scott was converted at a camp-meeting at age 20 and began to preach among the Methodists in 1821. He served various circuits in Vermont, New Hampshire & Massachusetts. In the mid 1830's Scott became convinced of the evil of slavery and "" became a radical, but nonviolent, abolitionist, opposed to temporizing and to colonization schemes."" This led him into conflict with his bishop Elijah Hedding. By 1841, he was convinced of the futility of his struggles against slavery within the Methodist Episcopal Church and withdrew. In 1843 along with La Roy Sunderland, Luther Lee & Jotham Horton, began publishing the weekly True Wesleyan, of which he remained editor until his death. At the Utica convention of 1844, Scott was elected president of the new Wesleyan Methodist Connexion, but refused the presidency of the entire denomination. ""Only in its curtailing of centralization, in its insistence on lay participation in policy setting and decision making, and in its more explicit allegiance to the doctrine of entire sanctification did the new organization differ from episcopal Methodism.""--quotes are from: Bassett, P.
