Issue #15 of Classic comics from November 1943 features an adaptation of Uncle Tom's Cabin. The comic book is now in the public domain.

Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe was a very influential book in American history and the abolitionist movement. The story tells some of the horrors of life as a slave.

Uncle Tom's Cabin is mentioned in many other works of literature.

Ironically, while Uncle Tom is a strong, admirable character who endures many hardships, the term "Uncle Tom" has come to mean someone who defers too much to authority, especially the whites in power.
