46 Chapter 13-15 Vocab and Art Smart Terms
Abolitionist Discrimination Famine Nativist Overseer Slave Code Underground Railroad Fugitive Secede Popular Sovereignty Explain three things you learned about the Underground Railroad on the back of your Uncle Tom’s Cabin Worksheet.

47 Let me take out one more Band Aid before I pass away in 1852
I will call it the “Compromise of 1850”

48 Harriet Beecher Stowe Uncle Tom’s Cabin 1852
300,000 copies sold during the first year The novel showed slavery as a cruel and brutal system

49 1. How does Stowe portray slaveholders in this scene?
Two slaves, Cassy and Emmeline, are hiding from their cruel master, Simon Legree. Simon threatens to beat Tom if he will not tell where Cassy and Emmeline are hiding. Tom, a Christian who has always been a loyal, hard-working slave, refuses and Simon swears that he'll conquer Tom or kill him: "Tom looked up to his master, and answered, "Mas'r, if you was sick, or in trouble, or dying, and I could save ye, I'd give ye my heart's blood; and, if taking every drop of blood in this poor old body would save your precious soul, I'd give 'em freely, as the Lord gave his for me. O, Mas'r! don't bring this great sin on your soul! It will hurt you more than 't will me! Do the worst you can, my troubles'll be over soon; but, if ye don't repent, yours won't never end!" "Like a strange snatch of heavenly music, heard in the lull of a tempest, this burst of feeling made a moment's blank pause. Legree stood aghast, and looked at Tom; and there was such a silence, that the tick of the old clock could be heard, measuring, with silent touch, the last moments of mercy and probation to that hardened heart. It was but a moment. There was one hesitating pause,--one irresolute, relenting thrill,--and the spirit of evil came back, with seven-fold vehemence; and Legree, foaming with rage, smote his victim to the ground. "Scenes of blood and cruelty are shocking to our ear and heart. What man has nerve to do, man has not nerve to hear. What brother-man and brother-Christian must suffer, cannot be told us, even in our secret chamber, it so harrows the soul! And yet, oh my country! these things are done under the shadow of thy laws! O, Christ! thy church sees them, almost in silence!" 1. How does Stowe portray slaveholders in this scene? 2. How does she portray slaves? 3. How do you think white Southerners felt when they read of Simon Legree's cruelty in Uncle Tom's Cabin?
