Chapter twenty-nine tells of the fight the New School mounted to try and take back the American Presbyterian Church through legal means. Meeting in Auburn, New York, the New School held what became the “Auburn Convention,” where they determined they would use all legal means to fight to retain their leadership role in the Presbyterian Church. By this time, nearly a half of all Presbyterians in the United States had aligned themselves with the New School. Such numbers shocked the Old School. Although the New School was awarded the trusteeship of the Church in a lower court, ultimately a higher Pennsylvania court awarded the Old School the right to be the guiding force of the American Presbyterian Church.
