Hey, Abraham_Bomba, knowing that Harriet Beecher Stowe is butt ugly, isn’t exactly helpful. I need this for a class assignment. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Harriet Beecher Stowe was an American writer and philanthropist, After writing her novel she spoke out against slavery. Harriet Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 – July 1, 1896) was an American author and abolitionist, whose novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852) attacked the cruelty of slavery; it reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the U. S. And Britain. It made the political issues of the 1850s regarding slavery tangible to millions, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North. It angered and embittered the South. The impact is summed up in a commonly quoted statement apocryphally attributed to Abraham Lincoln. When he met Stowe, it is claimed that he said, “So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war.”[ Check out the websites below.
