It would be lovely to say that Harriet Beecher Stowe single handedly began the Civil War, but I would have to disagree with that question. The tension had been building since the Constitution had been written. There were so many events that all played a part, and Stowe was definitely part of it. Lincoln did famously say that she was the little woman who started the Civil War. This comment, along with the death of her sons in the war, caused her to go mad.
