Uncle Tom's Cabin

Uncle Tom's Cabin  (1852) 
by Harriet Beecher Stowe

Uncle Tom's Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly, is American author Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel about the evils of slavery. Published in 1852, the novel had a profound effect on the world's view of African-Americans and slavery, so much so in the latter case that people have said the book laid the groundwork for the American Civil War.
