Harriet Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 - July 1, 1896) was an American writer and campaigner for the abolition of slavery. Her best known work is Uncle Tom's Cabin, which was hugely influential in gaining sympathy for the abolitionist cause.
More than twenty books by Harriet Beecher Stowe were published during her lifetime, including novels, poetry, short story collections, travel writing and collected volumes of her letters. However, Uncle Tom's Cabin is the only one of Beecher Stowe's works which is well known today.
