Harriet Beecher Stowe

I noted the comments about Harriet Beecher Stowe’s almost total lack of experience with the South and the slavery question during the time before the War of Northern Aggression.
 
Many may not realise it, but Harriet Beecher Stowe was quite a devotee of spiritualism before the War. I did an article for my blogspot http://thecopperhead.blogspot.com  back in September of 2005 dealing with Mrs. Stowe and her spiritualist tendencies.
 
Many have believed that those who sought to contact the dead (and still do) really do end up contacting something, quite possibly something demonic, that influences what they do afterward. I have often wondered if Stowe was into her spiritualism thing when she wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and if so, what effect did whatever she made contact with have on what she wrote in that incindiety volume?
