As well as literary titan Mark Twain, Hartford was also home to Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of the antislavery book Uncle Tom's Cabin . Upon meeting Stowe, Abraham Lincoln is alleged to have said, 'So this is the little lady who made this big war.' Built in 1871, the Stowe house reflects the author's strong ideas about decorating and domestic efficiency, as she expressed in her bestseller American Woman's Home, which was nearly as popular as her famous novel.
