I hate to bug you guys & girls with a homework question, but I'm mainly coming up with excerpts from the book itself. I'm doing a speech on Uncle Tom's Cabin and my speaking part is on the influences it had on society. So far I have the negative impact it has inadvertently caused in the last couple of decades, Lincoln, plays that were created, and her own inspiration to write the book. Anyone have suggestions of people during her time that were inspired/impacted by the story or her? Negative/Positive? Books written in response or applauding her? I'm going to keep searching, it is just that google hates me sometimes when I need it the most.
