Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (1811 – 1896) was an American abolitionist and author. She came from the Beecher family, a famous religious family, and is best known for her novel ‘Uncle Tom's Cabin,’ which was originally published in 1852. The novel depicts the harsh conditions for enslaved African Americans. The book reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and Great Britain, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. Stowe wrote 30 books, including novels, three travel memoirs, and collections of articles and letters. She was influential for both her writings and her public stances on social issues of the day. ‘Uncle Tom's Cabin’ is said to have helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War.
