Harriet Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 – July 1, 1896) was an American abolitionist and writer. Stowe's novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852) showed the lives of African-Americans who were slaves. It was very popular as a novel and a play, and had a great influence in the United States and Britain, helping people who did not like slavery and making many people disagree with slavery. When he met Stowe, it is said that Abraham Lincoln remarked, "So you're the little lady who started this great war!"
