Lorenzo Dow

Dow, Lorenzo (dou) [key], 1777–1834, American evangelist, b. Coventry, Conn. Although connected at times with the Methodist Church, he was an independent preacher for much of his life, traveling between the North and the South on horseback. By 1830, Dow was nationally known, not only for his eloquence, but for his oddities of manner and dress. He visited Ireland and England, where he introduced camp meetings.
