Harriet Beecher Stowe: Uncle Tom's Cabin and the Dominion of Conscience

February 16, 2019 at 1:00 PM | Mount Holly, NJ | Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences
In 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe published “Uncle Tom’s Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly” which helped move the conscience of the country to imperative cause of Abolitionism. Her story energized anti-slavery forces in the North, while provoking widespread anger in the pro-slavery South. Allegedly, when she met Abraham Lincoln, he said, “So you are the little woman that wrote the book that started this great war?”
