Henry Ward Beecher

Author Code: AHWB

Born: Jun. 24, 1813 - Litchfield, Connecticut, USA

Died: Mar. 8, 1887 - Brooklyn, New York, USA

The son of the abolitionist Lyman Beecher and brother of author Harriet Beecher Stowe, Beecher was educated at Amherst College and graduated in 1834. He then studied theology at Lane Theological Seminary and received his degree in 1837. He became a pastor of a Presbyterian church in Indiana and in 1839 moved to Indianapolis. His sermons were highly regarded by church goers and he gained a reputation as an eloquent speaker. In 1847, he moved to Brooklyn, New York and became the pastor of Plymouth Church. Although against slavery, Beecher never actually became an Abolitionist. He joined the newly formed Republican Party and in 1861 became the editor-in-chief of the Independent, A Congressional journal. His editorials were instrumental in unifying the Northern population against slavery. After the Civil War, he founded the Christian Union (which later became the Outlook). A refined speaker, Beecher became one of the most influential preachers in the United States in his day. Many of his sermons and views are contained in his works which include Seven Lectures to Young Men (1844), Star Papers: Experiences of Art and Nature (1855), Defense of Kansas (1856), Life Thoughts (1858), Plain and Pleasant Talks About Fruits, Flowers and Farming (1859), American Rebellion (1864), Prayers From Plymouth Pulpit (1867) and Norwood: A Tale of Village Life in New England (1867).
