Harriet Beecher Stowe Signed Quote.
Autographed signed quote from Harriet Beecher Stowe. It reads, "Lives of all great men remind us we can make our lives sublime and in dying leave behind us footprints on the sands of time. HB Stowe." The quote is from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem A Psalm of Life. In near fine condition. Double matted and framed with a photograph of Beecher Stowe. The entire piece measures 10 inches by 16 inches. Harriet Beecher Stowe was an American abolitionist and author. She came from the Beecher family, a famous religious family, and is best known for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852), which depicts the harsh conditions for enslaved African Americans. The book reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and Great Britain, energizing anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. Stowe wrote 30 books, including novels, three travel memoirs, and collections of articles and letters. She was influential for both her writings and her public stances on social issues of the day.
