Chèli’s Shelves reviewed Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011. It has been said that this book depicts the events that paved the way for the Civil War. Here’s an excerpt of the review:
Whether I can add any incite from this book, is hard to believe but here are my thoughts. The men say one thing and do another, i.e. slavery is bad but I’ll still own slaves.
