Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was a famed abolitionist and author. In 1851, she received a paltry $400 (a great sum in her day) for a serialized version of her novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which went on to be the most-sold novel of the 19th century and the second most-sold book, behind The Bible. The novel’s portrayal of slavery is credited as a catalyst for the slavery debate in the years preceding the Civil War.
