The Independent

Title

The Independent

Description

The Independent was an important voice in support of abolitionism, women’s suffrage, and other progressive causes. Under special contributors, Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe penned an article entitled “The President’s Message” in which Stowe wrote guardedly about the campaign of Abraham Lincoln in 1860. Sojurner Truth’s anecdote, “Is God dead?” appears in Stowe’s article. She contributed articles on slavery, religion, and morality to a The Independent, on a regular basis.
