Uncle Tom’s Cabin favored the opinions the northerners had of slavery in the south. This event is important to the coming of the civil war because it enabled the northerners to see the brutality of slavery. It personalized the political and economic arguments about slavery, enraged the south, and increased the tension between the two sides. It is important because it raised awareness of slavery throughout the nation as well as greatly contributing to the Civil war. If this event had not occurred, freedom for the slaves would have come much later or slavery still might have been here to this day.
