Uncle Tom's Cabin
When Harriet was growing up her father was a preacher, so she was taught to speak about wrong doings
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
Harriet was walking in town one day, and she ended up seeing a slave trade that horrified her. She saw a mother being ripped away from her child, and she hated it.

A little while after Harriet took in the slave and her child, she decided to write a book. Her book was called Uncle Tom's Cabin, and it sold around 10,000 copies in one week. Also, in a month it sold around 50,000 copies.

I will take your money and then you can go get a book
Harriet Beecher Stowe's book was getting hated on by the South, and they were calling it a book of lies. It was very close to being the reason slavery was stopped, but it didn't stop it. In fact, they ended up going to war over slavery, it was the Civil War.
