A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin is a book written by Harriet Beecher Stowe, the writer of Uncle Tom's Cabin. She was trying to show that the stories she wrote about slaves in Uncle Tom's Cabin were true.[1] However, later studies showed that Stowe had actually read lots of the books she wrote about in A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin after she had published her novel.[1] It was first published in 1853 by Jewett, Proctor & Worthington.
