Uncle Tom's Cabin or, Life Among the Lowly is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published in 1852, the novel "helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War", according to Will Kaufman.

Stowe, a Connecticut-born teacher at the Hartford Female Academy and an active abolitionist, featured the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters, both fellow slaves and slave owners revolve. The sentimental novel depicts the reality of slavery while also asserting that Christian love can overcome something as destructive as enslavement of fellow human beings.

Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible. It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. In the first year after it was published, 300,000 copies of the book were sold in the United States alone.

If you've never read Uncle Tom's Cabin, you SHOULD. If you have read it, you should read it AGAIN! They just don't write them like this anymore. Harriet Beecher Stowe exposes a painful time in America's history, and with well-written prose, shows the suffering men can bring in each other's lives. Uncle Tom was a real hero, in my opinion. And while some blacks see him as an overly tolerant servant to the white master, I see him as a god-fearing man who was wise beyond his time and who taught his owner who every man's master is.

This book should be requried reading for every high school student in America. I read this out of curiosity after listening to so many liberal politicians call conservative blacks, "Uncle Tom"'s. What I found was one of the most humble, upright, honest, and compassionate characters ever to grace the pages of a book. Any black who is called an, "Uncle Tom," ought to wear that as a badge of honor and decency.

So is it the whole story or just part of it?
