"To Your Tents, O Israel!"

To Your Tents, O Israel!” by Rev. Joseph F. DiPaolo


A well-known figure in the Delaware Valley region, Rev. Andrew Manship (1834-1892) was, in the words of a contemporary, “A remarkable man.”  An ordained Methodist preacher, he was a passionate evangelist, savvy businessman, popular author, publisher, church builder, and active supporter of the Union and its soldiers during the Civil War.  As a native of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Rev. Manship’s relationships with African-Americans, enslaved and free, both reflected and transcended the norms of his day.  His story captures the spirit of so many risk-taking individuals who built America and shaped the evangelical faith of the people during the mid-19th century.
