Dwight L. Moody, evangelical preacher. At age 18, Moody converted to evangelism while working in his uncle’s shoe store on Court Street in Boston. As a pacifist, he felt he could not enlist in the Union army, instead becoming involved with the YMCA and visiting soldiers on the front lines. Later, he would fill huge stadiums to capacity with his evangelical meetings around the U.S. and Europe.
