“Our country has recently passed through a great crisis which has concentrated upon it for a time the attention of the civilized world. It has sustained a shock which the whole world, judging by past experience, said must inevitably shatter the republic to fragment, and yet, like a gallant ship in full sail, it has run down the terrible obstacle… this wonderful success is owing to the character of the people which a Christian Democracy breeds.”

– Harriet Beecher Stowe

 

Known mostly for her cultural defining work ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin,’ Harriet Beecher Stowe presents biographical sketches of important men of America with a religious overtone. Stowe herself said that she intended all of her writings to have religious tones, but especially the non-fiction titles. This fine first edition includes 18 steel engraving portraits depicting famous men from early America: Lincoln, Grant, Douglass, Beecher, and many more!
