Set in the South in the antebellum 1850s, the novel depicted the life of several slaves and their harsh treatment by Simon Legree, a vicious slaveowner. While energizing the abolition movement in the North, the novel angered many in the South who pointed out that Beecher Stowe had never even visited several of the areas she wrote about, and much of the book was actually written in Brunswick, Maine. In response to critics, Beecher Stowe later wrote THE KEY TO UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, in which she attempted to mollify her critics by discussing her inspiration and sources for UNCLE TOM'S CABIN.
