Harriet Beecher Stowe was a strong woman and she made a book Uncle Tom's Cabin that reached out to three categories of people, Mothers of America, people of the free states, and Christians.
Uncle Tom's Cabin
Uncle Tom's Cabin written by Harriet Beecher Stowe is such a huge, strong, and argument-able story.
It was such a big deal that people referred to Stowe and the book as if it started The Civil War.
The first category of people Harriet tries to convince that slavery is wrong is the mothers of America. She makes them realize how devistated they would be if they lost their child or got separated from them.
“…have defended, encouraged, and participated; and are more guilty for it, before God, than the South…”
The second group of people Stowe tried to convince were the people of the free states. These people did not want to be viewed as the South. They wanted to feel superior and educated. The south came off less educated and rude, and they wanted nothing to do with it.
The third category of people Stowe tried to convince that slavery is wrong is Christians. Stowe made an argument that strongly stated not helping out with slavery and its wronging was not making you any better religiously.
"Here is the woman that started the Civil War."
Stowe's book, Uncle Tom's Cabin started a lot of conflict between teh North and SOuth because the South grew very angry over it because they didn;t want slavery to end. The conflict from this book grew so rapidly it eventually led to a great war, The Civil War.
