Harriet Beecher Stowe: 1811-1896
See also: Bibliography Harriet Beecher was born June 14, 1811, the seventh child of a famous protestant preacher. Harriet worked as a teacher with her older sister Catharine: her earliest publication was a geography for children, issued under her sister's name in 1833. In 1836, Harriet married widower Calvin Stowe: they eventually had seven children. Stowe helped to support her family financially by writing for local and religious periodicals. During her life, she wrote poems, travel books, biographical sketches, and children's books, as well as adult novels. She met and corresponded with people as varied as Lady Byron, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and George Eliot. She died at the age of 85, in Hartford Conneticutt. While she wrote at least ten adult novels, Harriet Beecher Stowe is predominantly known for her first, Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852). Begun as a serial for the Washington anti-slavery weekly, the National Era , it focused public interest on the issue of slavery, and was deeply controversial. In writing the book, Stowe drew on her personal experience: she was familiar with slavery, the antislavery movement, and the underground railroad because Kentucky, across the Ohio River from Cincinnatti, Ohio, where Stowe had lived, was a slave state. Following publication of the book, she became a celebrity, speaking against slavery both in America and Europe. She wrote A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin (1853) extensively documenting the realities on which the book was based, to refute critics who tried to argue that it was inauthentic; and published a second anti-slavery novel

H arriet Beecher Stowe was raised in a Puritan tradition of high moral standard and proselytization. Her father Lyman Beecher was a Congregational Minister and brother Henry Ward Beecher became pastor of Brooklyn's Plymouth Church. The Beechers moved to Cincinatti when Lyman Beecher was appointed President of Lane Theological seminary. There, Harriet's sister Catharine founded Western Female Institute, where Harriet taught until her 1834 marriage to widower Calvin Stowe, a Biblical Literature professor at Lane. During the first seven years of marriage she bore five children, writing pieces for magazines to compliment Professor Stowe's meager salary. She won a short story prize from Western Monthly Magazine , and her literary production and skill increased steadily. In 1834, her short-story collection The Mayflower was published. T his Ohio period gave Stowe the impetus to write Uncle Tom's Cabin . Cincinnati was just across the river from the slave trade, and she observed firsthand several incidents which galvanized her to write famous anti-slavery novel. Scenes she observed on the Ohio River, including seeing a husband and wife being sold apart, as well as newspaper and magazine accounts and interviews, contributed material to the emerging plot. The family shared her abolitionist sentiment and was active in hiding runaway slaves. I n 1850 Calvin Stowe was appointed at Bowdoin, and the entire family returned to the Northeast. They reached Boston at the height of the public furor over the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law, which mandated the return of runaway slaves already in the North to their owners. Many former slaves fled to Canada from their homes in New England. Harriet set about writing a polemical novel illustrating the moral responsibility of the entire nation for the cruel system. She forwarded the first episodes to Dr. Bailey, editor of the Washington anti-slavery weekly

The book was quickly translated into 37 languages and it sold in five years over half a million copies in the United States. Uncle Tom's Cabin was also among the most popular plays of the 19th century. "Eliza made her desperate retrest across the river just in the dusk of twilight. The gray mist of evening, rising slowly from the river, enveloped her as she disappeared up the bank, and the swollen current and floundering masses of ice presented a hopeless barrier between her and her pursuer." (from Uncle Tom's Cabin Harriet Beecher Stowe was born in Litchfield, Connecticut, and brought up with puritanical strictness. She had one sister and six brothers. Her father, Lyman Beecher, was a controversial Calvinist preacher. Her mother, Roxana Foote, died at 41 - Stowe was four at that time. Her aunt, Harriet Foote, influenced deeply Stowe's thinking, especially with her strong belief in culture. Samuel Foote, her uncle, encouraged her to read works of Lord Byron and Sir Walter Scott. When Stowe was eleven years old, she entered the seminary at Hartford, Connecticut, kept by her elder sister Catherine. The school had advanced curriculum and she learned languages, natural and mechanical science, composition, ethics, logic, mathematics, subjects that were generally taught to male students. Four years later she was employed as an assistant teacher. Her father married again - he became the president of lane Theological Seminary.

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896)
Stowe is best remembered for the melodramatic and sentimental "Uncle Tom's Cabin", an antislavery novel written in 1851. This work, which made Stowe famous virtually overnight, intensified North and South antagonism in the pre-Civil War era, making her a hated figure in the South and the darling of the English abolitionists. However, the modern impression of her most famous characterssuch as Uncle Tom, Topsy, Little Eva, and Simon Legree brought to mind by "Uncle Tom's Cabin" are less the products of her work than of the 1852 play by George L. Aiken.

and Henry Ward Beecher
Sometime after 1860, Lyman Beecher left Boston to live in Brooklyn with his son, Henry Ward Beecher, popular pastor of Plymouth Congregational Church. Though the younger Beecher's ministry of love and redemption contrasted strongly with his father's strict Calvinist philosophy, both he and his sister, Harriet Beecher Stowe, carried on their father's opposition to slavery. Harriet Beecher Stowe's 1852 novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin , rendered her tragic subject in a style that combined heartfelt conviction with endless documentary detail, and the book made her the best-known author of her generation. This image was made around 1861, when Henry Ward Beecher, as editor of the national magazine The Independent , began to call for ever more radical action from Lincoln to end slavery and bring the war to a close.

Harriet Beecher Stowe:
A Woman Of Many Words
"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for
words left unsaid and for deeds left undone."
Harriet Beecher Stowe was an author, a philanthropist, an abolitionist, and a woman. She was a very determined woman, who was born on June 14, 1811 in Litchfield, Conneticut. She came from an average family, she performed average in school, and she did not attend college. She was scorned and ridiculed in the South because of her first book in 1852, titled Uncle Tom's Cabin . Other works from Harriet Beecher Stowe include, The Minister's Wooing Dred: A Tale of the Great Dismal Swamp Oldtown Folks (1869), and A Key To Uncle Tom's Cabin (1853). Harriet Beecher Stowe hated slavery and showed it in her books. She was a great author, and I think we should all learn from her.
"Slavery is the next worst thing to Hell."

American author (1811-1896)
Harriet Elisabeth Beecher was born in Lichtchfiled, Connecticut, the 14th June 1811. Even though being brought up in a puritan way her father was a congregationist minister like Jonathan Edwards and her six brothers ended up like him too she was neither prudish nor religious. However, protestantism played an important role in her life. In 1835 she got married to Clavin Stowe, minister and biblical literature teacher. In 1849, her sixth child dies from cholera, which leaves her in a grieving state.
In 1850 the Fugitive Slave Law was passed by which everybody had to denounce any fugitive slave and hand him/her over to the authorities. This law inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe to write a serial that appeared in The national Era in 1851: Uncle Tom's Cabin . This book arose controversies which had a determining influence on the Civil War. It has been translated into 32 languages and adapted into a play which was on stage until 1930. In 1856 she published its sequel: Dred, a tale of the Great Dismal Swamp

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811 - 1896) Stowe's landmark novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, has often been cited as one of the causes of the Civil War. She became outraged by written accounts of the injustice and cruelty of the slave system and traveled to the South to investigate it herself. The material she gathered became the source for Uncle Tom's Cabin; or Life Among the Lowly. The book, which was first published in 1831 in serial form in an abolitionist newspaper, became an immediate sensation, soon gaining worldwide popularity. Stowe was also an ardent supporter of women's rights, and she collaborated with her sister, Catherine Beecher, on nineteen domestic-science books.

Barbara Smith, from Third Floor Publishing, presents this biographical article about the author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." As a mother who grieved for lost children, harriet beecher stowe felt a bond with slave mothers who lost their children
"... I HAVE BEEN the mother of seven children, the most beautiful and most loved of whom lies buried near my Cincinnati residence. It was at his dying bed and at his grave that I learned what a poor slave mother may feel when her child is torn away from her. In those depths of sorrow which seemed to me immeasurable, it was my only prayer to God that such anguish might not be suffered in vain. There were circumstances about his death of such peculiar bitterness, of what seemed almost cruel suffering that I felt I could never be consoled for it unless this crushing of my own heart might enable me to work out some great good to others. I allude to this here because I have often felt that much that is in that book had its root in the awful scenes and bitter sorrow of that summer. It has left now, I trust, no trace on my mind except a deep compassion for the sorrowful, especially for mothers who are separated from their children."

Harriet Beecher Stowe:
“A Little Bit of a Woman”
By Barbara Smith The woman credited with sparking the Civil War came to Christ at thirteen, during one of her father’s sermons. She wrestled throughout her eighty-five years with questions and spiritual conflicts for she endured grave trials: her mother died while Harriet was a very young child; her husband, though an erudite theologian, could not provide financially and suffered bouts of poor health; she lost four children tragically; and she enjoyed the acclaim of the rich and powerful of her generation. In spite of these upheavals, her basic faith in the Lord Jesus Christ held and sustained her. Harriet was born in Connecticut in 1811, the daughter of Lyman Beecher. He was a persuasive preacher, theologian, a founder of the American Bible Society who was active in the anti slavery movement, and the father of thirteen children. Her mother who died when Harriet was four years old, was a woman of prayer, asking the Lord to call her six sons into the ministry. All eventually preached; Henry Ward Beecher, the youngest son became the most prominent. After her mother’s death, Harriet grew close to her sister, Catherine, teaching in her school and writing books with her soon after she turned thirteen. Harriet was brilliant and bookish, and idolized the poetry of Lord Byron. When her father became president of Lane Theological Seminary in Ohio, she moved with him and met Calvin Stowe a professor and clergyman who fervently opposed slavery. He was nine years her senior and the widower of a dear friend of hers, Eliza Tyler. Their subsequent marriage in 1836 was born of the common grief they shared. In later years, Mark Twain’s daughter Susy Clemens saw Calvin Stowe merrily reported to her father, “Santa Clause has got loose.”(
