PostSubject: Reform work   Thu Dec 30, 2010 6:56 am

In 1850, Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Law, prohibiting assistance to fugitives. Stowe was moved to present her objections on paper, and in June 1851, when she was 40, the first installment of her Uncle Tom's Cabin was published in the antislavery journal National Era. Its emotional portrayal of the impact of slavery captured the nation's attention. It added to the debate about abolition and slavery, and aroused opposition in the South. When asked by a reporter to comment on the nation's reaction to her novel, she is said to have replied, "I only pray that God Almighty shall bring this cruelty to a swift end."

Stowe died on July 1, 1896, at age eighty-five, in Hartford, Connecticut. She is buried in the historic cemetery at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts.
