"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?

It effected many people because it told that slaves have feelings too! When they are seperated from thier family they get sad too, just like the whites. When the slaveowners say cruel words to the slaves they are very sad, just like whites. It made them want to stop slavery because they now saw that slaves had feelings too.

It affected people so deeply because, it is the truth about slavery. It made people learn how bad slavery actually is. Most people didn't know how slavery worked and they didn't know it was that bad. After the book, they saw slavery from a slaves point of veiw. Few people thought slavery was still good after reading the book. It affected people greatly.

It may have started a war, but it changed the country's view of slavery. It helped the slaves get freed because the union felt stronger about freeing slaves. It also made the confederate army scared of the union. So it made the union have a better chance at winning the war, and slavery ending.

The book changed the way that plantation onwers looked at slaves way of life; and how they felt. Plantation owners thought that slaves were just properties until they read the book they thought as them as people. Slaves tried to keep their family together as well as to keep eachother alive during the time. lots of people read this book and became abalishinosts. Plantation owners read this book and if they had kids or a loved one they would think of them as slaves and what if they got broken apart ans seperated. Slave mothers tried to keep their family together
