Harriet Beecher Stowe

By Noel Gerson

“So this is the little lady who made this big war,” marvelled Abraham Lincoln when he first met Harriet Beecher Stowe. Here is the story of this fascinating woman who literally changed the course of American history with her book Uncle Tom’s Cabin. In an age when women were usually confined to the kitchen, Stowe argued emancipation with President Lincoln and had an extraordinary relationship with Queen Victoria. A towering literary figure who was also a remarkable woman, a crusading feminist, Stowe’s life was more dramatic than anything she wrote.
