"Harriet Beecher Stowe's most famous introduction took place on or around Thanksgiving Day, 1862, when she was introduced to President Abraham Lincoln, who allegedly greeted her with these memorable words, 'So you're the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war!'"

Not all historians believe that this actually happened, but it’s true that Stowe’s book was very important.  Why do you think Uncle Tom’s Cabin affected people so deeply?

We think that since it is about a slaves life story and the way slaves felt that the people finaly realized crulley slaves were treated.Slaves were losing their families. Also since the story was showing how the slaves felt it helped the people see how the slaves felt from their point of view. slaves were not getting respect needed to survive.

Uncle Tom's cabin affected people so deeply because poeple finaly
realized how poorly slaves were being treated and what it was like to be a slave. People also realized that families were being torn apart because slaves were being sold like everyday. People also reald that slaves were being pressured to work faster.

People realized what was happening to the slaves and how bad they were treated. The book reinforced one side of the arguement, the anti-slavery side. In the book, it also showed that families were being torn apart because some people of the same family were being sold while others stayed behind. Also, slaves were being beaten and people read about that. The book was one of the main causes of the Civil War. Besides that, the book also referenced the new at the time Fugitive Slave Act.

We believe the reason why Uncle Tom's Cabin effected people so deeply was because it showed how cruel people were to slaves because they would hurt them and split their familys apart. It made people relize that slaves were people too and that they have feelings and family.

This book showed people in the north , what they already knew; that slaves were being treated unfairly, but also that families were being seperated every day.This reached out to union moms ,which were outraged about the fact of families being split apart.This not only reached out to union moms but also helped the union cause.
