Dubbed “the most famous woman in America” after she wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin, President Lincoln called Harriet Beecher Stowe “the little lady who wrote the book that started this big war.”

Join us for the Friends’ annual meeting, where Andover storyteller, Susan Lenoe, will portray Harriet Beecher Stowe, and reminisce about her role in the abolitionist movement, her family joys and trials, and her life in Andover, where she lived for twelve years.

Lest We Forget: Andover and the Civil War is a series of events commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War. More info at
