When proslavery critics of Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin (1851) charged that she did not describe slavery accurately, she published this fact-filled 1853 book demonstrating that her novel was true to life. This is a facsimile of an 1853 edition with the small text enlarged to make it more easily read. It is an excellent source of information about mid-nineteenth century American slavery.
