Impact during the war

Well for starters she didn't just change it she basically started it with her book "uncle tom's Cabin",She still changed it by first off getting the people riled up enough to make the north hate the slavery going on in the south.

Life after the war

After the Civil War, the Stowe's purchased a house and property in Mandarin, FL, on the St. John's River, and began to travel south each winter.There were multiple reasons for their decision. The Beecher's and the Stowe's knew that racial equality required more than legislation; it also required education. Stowe's brother Charles Beecher (1815-1900) opened a Florida school to teach emancipated people, and he urged Calvin and Harriet Stowe to join him.Stowe and her family wintered in Mandarin for over 15 years before Calvin's health prohibited long travel.
