About This Lesson

When we talk about the power of language, we often focus on how words can injure. In this inquiry, students look at the other side of that equation to consider how words can result in reform. Investigating historical sources related to Uncle Tom’s Cabin—including illustrations and passages from the first edition of the novel, letters written by Harriet Beecher Stowe and reviews published the year the book was released—students address the compelling question: “Can words lead to war?”
