Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896), the daughter of preacher Lyman Beecher and sister of Henry Ward Beecher, gained lasting fame as the author of "Uncle Tomâ€™s Cabin," which she wrote in reaction to the Fugitive Slave Act. Stowe began writing the novel in February of 1851, and it was serially published between June 5, 1851 and April 1852 in the "National Era," an abolitionist newspaper. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was issued in book form in late 1852.
