Description - Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Thomas Thornburg
When Abraham Lincoln met author Harriett Beecher Stowe, he is reported to have said, "So this is the little lady that started this big war!" Uncle Tom's Cabin is the seminal exploration and depiction of the atrocities that African Americans suffered as slaves in the pre-Civil War South. Tom is a Christ-like figure that is ultimately murdered, but not without first creating a love that helps all his fellow slaves. This book became a sort of Bible for the Abolitionists. This concise supplement to Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin helps students understand the overall structure of the novel, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author.
