Olive Karlsen, Julia Canfield, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Karen's Office.

        This novel is one of 27 anti Uncle Tom novels published. This shows just how powerful the book was that pro-slavery supporters felt they needed to write not just 1, but 27 different anti- novels to try and prove Harriet Beecher Stowe wrong. Although mainly Southerners wrote the novels, some Northerners wrote them too. Even though many people read these novels, more read Uncle Tom's Cabin. This tore our nation apart, because sides began to to work through books in order to win over citizen's minds.
