Uncle Tom's Cabin
by Mary Kenan
Most of us have heard of Uncle Tom's Cabin and how it was a novel that infuriated Northerns and Southerners alike, but for different reasons.
I don't recall ever having read it before, but it was an important part of American history.
Having a bit more time these days in retirement, I decided to read it. After having done so, it is easy to understand the emotions this book stirred up.
Simon Legree is a quintessential villain, and poor old Uncle Tom is the typical long suffering victim.
No wonder Abe Lincoln said, after meeting Mrs. Stowe, "so you're the little lady that started this big war".
A good and easy read, even today.
