2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in America.
In 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe published “Uncle Tom’s Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly” which helped move the conscience of the country to the imperative cause of Abolitionism. The book was included on The Library of Congress' list of books that defined America and has been called the most influential novel ever written by an American.
Harriet Beecher Stowe's story energized anti-slavery forces in the North, while provoking widespread anger in the pro-slavery South.
