In a small town in the U.s., a woman by the name of Harriet Beecher Stowe was writing a book. Little did she know that the very book she was writing would go down in the history books. The book was known as 'Uncle Tom's Cabin'.
Once the North got word of this book they were glad. (the book was about Harriet's POV on slavery. The North agreed to end slavery while the south wanted to keep slavery
When the South Got word of this book, they were outrageous. They belived that the North were trying to take their slaves away. So they retalliated.
