              Literature & History

              Literature has a profound impact on culture, what better way to learn about America's history than through its authors. Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel Uncle Tom's Cabin may have hastened the arrival of the American Civl War. Henry David Thoreau's essay On Civil Disobedience inspired Ghandi, Mandela, and Martin Luther King. Literature is also a captive of history and sometimes proper appreciation is difficult to achieve without an understanding of the work's historical setting; The Scarlet Letter-- indeed much of Hawthorne's work-- is difficult to appreciate without historical education. We feature great American Biographies.
