Re: Uncle Tom's Cabin - the book

I agree with your assessment. Names and their meanings do change overtime. I was just saying to a friend on yesterday that the name "Uncle Tom" did not originate as odious.

Also it is said that only the Bible has sold more copies. (I cannot document that). Abe Lincoln, on being introduced to Harriet Beecher Stowe, is reported to have said "So you are the lady whose book started the Civil War"
