Hello students, My name is Harriet Beecher Stowe and here to give you an exclusive interview about not just my book but my life.
Before becoming a Stowe, I was a Beecher. A family very active in matters of Slavery, Temperance and other eventful controversies. So I decided to make my own impact in this world, but how?
As a stay at home mum out in the middle of nowhere with the responsibility of taking care of the children, there wasn't much I could do. So I wrote a book.
It even made President Lincoln want to "Shake the hand of the little girl that started the war"
Its popularity was widespread because it was the first book to personalise Slavery. It took me tot many great places and heights. For example, I met Abraham Lincoln
The book was a compiled mix of slave stories heard from the fugitives they helped while. in the underground railroads.
Uncle Tom's Cabin, the highlight of Mrs Stowe's career, was popular because it was an eye-opener to a very controversial topic.
Mrs Stowe lived to the ripe old age of 85 were she dies of Alziemers on July 1st, 1896. (She was neighbours with Mark Twain). All fighters of slavery including me, Harriet Tubman, really appreciate her contribution.
