STORY BY Harriet Beecher Stowe

Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Uncle Tom’s Cabin

425 Reads

Uncle Tom’s Cabin is one of the few books that can lay claim to having actually changed the world. Although the American anti-slavery movement had existed at least as long as the nation itself, Stowe’s novel of 1852 galvanized public opinion as nothing had before. The book sold 10,000 copies in its first week and 300,000 in its first year. Its vivid dramatization of slavery’s cruelties so aroused readers that it is said Abraham Lincoln told Stowe her work had been a catalyst for the Civil War.

A MORAL BATTLE CRY FOR FREEDOM TO THE WORLD Uncle Tom’s Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly, is an abolitionist novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe. It achieved wide popularity, particularly among white readers in the North, by vividly dramatizing the experience of slavery. When Stowe visited President Lincoln at the White House in 1862, he reportedly said, “So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that made this Great War” This statement, regardless of its truth, testifies to Uncle Tom’s Cabin’s impact. Despite Stowe’s desire to portray slavery as a powerful blight upon the nation, she also did much to expand anti-black sentiment through her presentation of stereotypical black characters in the novel. However, this book, read by hundreds of thousands of Americans, proved a powerful weapon in the campaign to end human bondage in the United States.
