Uncle Tom's Cabin Newsletter

1850's Cultural Interactions

Throughout the nineteenth century, advertisements are showing that even though the book, Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, was not a favored book, people had strong opinions and controversies regarding the issues of racism within slavery. Most southerners promoted the idea that if a slave was compliant, then they would survive.


In this advertisement, although the book isn't a good read, it does have a strong opinion regarding the issue of slavery and very greatly shows all the bad effects of it.
