-h01THAT 'LITTLE WOMAN WHO STARTED A GREAT BIG WAR' MANDARIN --Abraham Lincoln tabbed her "that little woman who started a great big war." And after Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote the world-wide best-seller, Uncle Tom's Cabin her name was anathema in Dixie. But the gifted writer became one of Florida's most distinguished residents, and a drum-beater for the Sunshine State far more effective than the most exhuberant Chamber of Commerce press agent. The Stowe family came to this picturesque spot on the St. Johns River below Jacksonville in 1867, during Reconstruction days. Both her husband, clergyman Calvin Ellis Stowe, and son, Frederick, had health problems. Her prolific and imaginative pen made her the breadwinner. She also did philantropy among the Negroes. The author was the No. 1 attraction to travelers aboard the river boats passing Mandarin. The old home place was destroyed by fire a few years ago. But the carriage house (photo) still stands, on property owned by retired Pan American and Navy pilot, Carl F. Tauch. It's been remodeled into a handsome guest house, but originally provided shelter for five carriages on the ground floor. The upper floor originally was a nicely-furnished apartment for the Negro footman. Here, amid the orange trees, live oaks, birds, animals and attractions of the river, Mrs. Stowe wrote Palmetto Leaves in 1873. This was a volume of tranquil sketches describing the area and boosting Florida. Her other Reconstruction Era writings were for the most part violent polemics.
