Henry Ward Beecher is being honored here in Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn, NY.  He was a social reformer, known for his support of the abolition of slavery.  His sister Harriet Beecher Stowe received worldwide fame for her abolitionist novel, Uncle Toms Cabin.  His statue depicts him in an upright position with children by his side, this may be because he was a firm believer in God’s love f.  Uncle Toms Cabin is a must read novel, I would recommend it to anyone!
