On this date, November 8, 1841, Orange Scott withdrew from the Methodist Episcopal Church. He presided over the convention that organized the new Wesleyan Methodist Connexion in 1843. Part of the reason for the forming of the Wesleyan Methodist Connexion was that he became convinced that holy hearts should result in holy lives and that holy men should seek to bring an end to social evils such as slavery and intemperance.
