Uncle Tom's Cabin was first published in 1852 and many historians have credited Harriet Beecher Stowe, who wrote this fictional tale of slavery in early America, for starting the American Civil War. This Classics adaptation was first published in 1943. Includes the Life of Stowe, a two-page feature, and a special intro by William Jones, Jr.

"When Abraham Lincoln first greeted Stowe, the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, at the White House in 1862 he supposedly said, "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war!" Although those words are now regarded as apocryphal, the story persists in popular culture because it carries at its core an element of truth. The indisputable fact is that the widely read and embraced novel stirred Northern outrage against the Southern "peculiar institution" of slavery in a way that no other publication, book or newspaper, had done before it."

It became the best-selling novel of the 19th century and a moral milestone in American history!
