In this area are some of the most spectacular and diverse Woodland Period archaeological sites in North America, but these sites and their rich cultural remains do not fit easily into the traditional Southeastern classification system.

In place of his own preacher father's fire-and- brimstone theology, Beecher preached a gospel of unconditional love and forgiveness, giving us the Christianity we have today. His sermons at Plymouth Church in Brooklyn Heights were so galvanizingly popular that the ferries from Manhattan to Brooklyn became known as "Beecher Boats." When he became involved in the abolition movement-his sister was Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin-rifles shipped to the resistance fighters in Kansas became known as "Beecher Bibles." Men such as Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman, and Twain befriended - and sometimes parodied - him. And then it fell apart. The wildly charismatic Beecher was accused by feminist firebrand Victoria Woodhull of adultery with his best friend's wife, and the cuckolded Theodore Tilton brought charges of "criminal conversation," leading to a salacious trial that was the most widely covered event of the nineteenth century, garnering, by some counts, more headlines than the entire Civil War. It ended in a hung jury, but by his death in 1886, Beecher's star was considerably dimmed. [The author] brings this fascinating, flawed figure to deserved new life and places him at the center of the key dramas of the American nineteenth century - including the advent of the pulp novel and tabloid press. -, DebbyHarriet Beecher Stowe Center lecture on Henry Ward BeecherBiography11ocn137340674book19981.00Applegate, DebbyThe culture of the novel and the consolidation of middle-class consciousness : Henry Ward Beecher and the uses of sympathy, 1830-1880History+-+3148600385+-+3148600385Fri Mar 21 15:31:58 EDT 2014batch6718
