She was a passionate patriot whose poetry in support of the Union Cause, elicited a response from President Lincoln. She was a “Romantic Wanderer.” The publication of her book, A Russian Journey, detailing her two year sojourn in this exotic land, won international acclaim. She published a true slave narrative entitled “Aunt Sally” around the same time as Uncle Tom’s Cabin. While she was a citizen of the world, her fondness for her home town of Framingham is evident in her poem “Our Town” written for the Bi-Centennial celebration.
