Harriet Beecher Stowe

By Jane Runyon
1     Harriet Beecher Stowe visited the president of the United States in 1862. President Lincoln greeted her as "the little lady who made this big war." The Civil War had begun the year before. Harriet Beecher Stowe had written a book called Uncle Tom's Cabin. Some believed this book was the spark that ignited the war.
 
2     Harriet Beecher was born on June 14, 1811. Her father was a preacher. She was the seventh of nine children. She was born in Litchfield, Connecticut. Harriet's mother died when Harriet was only five years old. Harriet never got over her early loss. Many slave children were taken from their mothers at very early ages. Many never knew the love and security a mother can give a child. Neither did Harriet. She grew up knowing how hurt the slave children were.
 
3     Harriet became a teacher. She and her sister, Catharine, worked together. Harriet published her first book when she was twenty-two. She was too shy to use her own name. She used her sister's name.
