Writer and abolitionist Author of the best-selling antislavery novel Uncle Tom's Cabin
Harriet Beecher Stowe brought to life the horrors of slavery for people in the Northern United States through her popular novel Uncle Tom's Cabin. Her book was one of the first to portray black characters as real people with the same hopes and dreams as whites. It inspired thousands of people in the North to join the fight against slavery, and also increased the tensions between the North and South. As a result, many historians have claimed that Stowe helped cause the Civil War.
