Author Harriet Beecher Stowe, shown in this 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.78 cm) engraving, wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin after a visit to abolitionist John Rankin's home in Ripley, Ohio. Rankin and his family operated a major stop on the Underground Railroad and were credited with helping more than two thousand runaway slaves reach freedom in Canada. Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was born in Connecticut in 1811. She was one of eleven children and many of her siblings were active in antebellum reform movements. The family moved to Ohio, where Harriet married Calvin Stowe, a professor at the Lane Theological Seminary. Although she is best known for Uncle Tom's Cabin, Stowe published thirty books and many shorter pieces. While living near the Ohio River in Cincinnati, Ohio, Stowe saw firsthand the horror of slavery across the river in Kentucky.
