    Two outstanding books. Are No Ordinary Time by Doris Kearns Goodwin

    Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harrient Beacher Stowe, published before the US Civil War, is of great historical significance. Most people who use the term Uncle Tom probably never read this book, yet it had a great effect on citizens views toward slavery in its time.
