According to legend, Abraham Lincoln greeted Harriet Beecher Stowe in 1862 by saying "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war."

Whether the story is true or not, the sentiment underscores the public connection between her novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, and the American Civil War.
