We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is:American Civil War.
Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly, is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. It had a profound impact on Americans' public opinion and is widely credited with fueling the abolitionist movement. Its publication materially contributed to the tensions leading up to the American Civil War.
Published in 1895, a full thirty years after the American Civil War had ended, The Red Badge of Courage follows the trials and tribulations of Henry Fleming, a recruit in the American Civil War struggling with ideas of bravery and courage. Although Stephen Crane was born after the war and never participated in battle himself, he produced one of the most influential war novels of all time and veterans praised his ability to capture the true nature of the battles he described.
Both a memoir and abolitionist statement, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave is considered one of the most important and influential writings of the abolitionist movement of the early 19th century in the United States. The book details the events of Frederick Douglass's life, documenting the cruel brutality and injustice of a slave's life as well as the immorality of slavery itself.
