From the Paper:

"Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" is universally understood to be one of the most important and deeply penetrating books of its time. Published during episodes of the National Era, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" is often credited, in part, for the tensions that led to the American Civil War. Stowe wrote the work as a reaction too the Fugitive Slave Act under which it became illegal for anyone to give aid or assistance to a runaway slave."
