  • Oh no! I cannot repay my debts so I must sell my slaves. How many would I have to sell in order to repay my debts?
  • With this tough decision, Tom decides to stay and trusts Mr. Shelby's claims that he will re-buy Tom.
  • Tom! I heard Mr. Shelby talking to a slave trader and Mr. Shelby decided you and my son Henry! We are fleeing and I suggest you and your family do too.
  • While traveling South with slave trader Mr. Haley, Tom saves a young girl named Eva from drowning in a river. Augustine St. Clare, Eva's father, buys Tom to be Eva's servant because he believes Tom would be a trustworthy man.
  • Oh no! Someone please help my daughter Eva!
  • Help! I'm drowning!
  • After Eva and Augustine died from tuberculosis and a brawl, Tom is sold to a mean slave owner named Simon Legree. Legree tried to dehumanize his slaves and thought of them as property
