Uncle Tom's Cabin ('14)

[Reconstructed titles]

1
        FOREWORD
This is a story of an exotic
race, whose ancestors,
born beneath a tropic sun,
were brought to the New
World by heartless traders,
  and sold into slavery.

2
Harriet Beecher Stowe's
UNCLE TOM'S CABIN,
and the characters of
Aunt Ophelia, Eliza,
Marks the Lawyer, Topsy,
Little Eva, and the im-
mortal UNCLE TOM will
    live forever.

3
Many slaves ran away to
escape unjust treatment
   by their masters.

4
George Shelby and
his faithful servant,
    Uncle Tom.

5
Eliza and her baby son ...
great favorites on the
     plantation.

6
Eliza's husband, George
  Harris, a Mulatto.

7
Haley, a notorious
  slave trader.

8
"Mr. Shelby, I want that boy
Harry, and thet niggah Tom.
I get 'em both or I forclose the
mortgage. You just got until
eight to-night to decide."

9
  As George Harris bids 
farewell to Eliza, she tells
  him of Haley's demand 
     for their boy.

10
"Mr. Shelby will never
sell our son ... he is
not like my master."

11
"Good bye - when next
you hear from me it will
be as George Harris, the
free man - not as George
  Harris the slave."

12
Shelby is forced to sell
Uncle Tom and Little
       Harry.

13
"Massa Shelby done 
sold you, my lamb -
but with the help of
Him above, maybe 
I can save you."

14
George Harris prepares to
escape to Canada, while
his wife, Eliza, takes des-
perate measures to save
      her child.

15
Eliza bids farewell to
Uncle Tom and Chloe.

16
"I'll put the bloodhounds 
    on her track ...
   I'll catch her."

17
On Eliza's trail.

18
 Tom Loker and
Marks the Lawyer.

19
The hazards of floating 
ice and a swift current
does not deter this mother
... for freedom lies on 
    the other side.

20
Phineas Fletcher, A
Quaker, extends aid
     to Eliza.

21
Haley bitter and dis-
grunted, returns to take
Uncle Tom to NEW
     ORLEANS.

22
"When I'm a man, I'll
buy you back Uncle
Tom",... "Mr. Haley,
there's not one in the 
world like Uncle Tom."

23
Master Shelby grieves for
    his Uncle Tom.

24
Haley seeks the help of
   Marks and Loker.

25
"I'll get Harris and the 
boy for you if I have
to chase them all the 
   way to Canada."

26
Marks and Loker hire a
posse to hunt down the
     fugitives

27
George Harris and Eliza,
his wife, are re-united.

28
Bound for New Orleans,
Uncle Tom meets St.
Clair and Little Eva.

29
Aunt Ophelia and
   Little Eva

30
Uncle Tom saves Little
Eva from a watery grave.

31
St. Clair buys Uncle Tom
        for Eva.

32
   TWO YEARS LATER
Uncle Tom tells Eva of
  the New Jerusalem

33
Topsy ... 'She wasn't
born, she just growed'

34
Aunt Ophelia upbraids
 Topsy for stealing.

35
"Topsy, I love you and
if you love me, you will
promise never to steal 
        again."

36
 Spring brings sadness
into the St. Clair home.

37
Eva exacts a promise
from her father to free
      Uncle Tom.

38
  "In Heaven above,
where all is love, we'll
meet to part no more."

39
Topsy's offering

40
While attempting to
prevent a quarrel, St.
Clair is accidentally
  stabbed to death.

41
On St. Clair's death, his
slaves, including Uncle
Tom are sold at auction

42
Simon Legree, a harsh
slave owner, buys Uncle
Tom and a young girl,
      Emmeline.

43
Up the river to Legree's
      plantation.

44
Cassy, a slave who is
Legree's housekeeper

45
"God help the poor 
wretches he is bringing 
to this Hell on earth."

46
Legree warns the slaves
not to try to escape.

47
"Tom, you nigger, St.
Clair spoiled you, but
I'll make better use of 
those muscles of yours."

48
Tom put to work in the
fields with the other 
       slaves.

49
"I hate religious niggers,
damn you! Give that boy
a hundred lashes, or I'll
send you to that New
Jerusalem you are
always talking about."

50
Emmeline is made house-
keeper, and Cassy is sent
to work in the fields.

51
"Legree will never make 
that girl the thing he
made me ... To-night
we will find freedom,
or a grave in the 
    swamp."

52
That afternoon.

53
Cassy and Emmeline 
prepare to run away

54
Young Shelby, now grown
to manhood, remembering
his promise, seeks Uncle
          Tom.

55
"I am seeking an old
negro by the name of 
        Tom."

56
"Why, we heard Tom
was sold to Simon 
Legree, who lives down
on the Red River."

57
"Tell me where Cassy
and Emmeline went, or
I'll break every bone in 
  your black body."

58
Young Shelby continues
his search for Uncle Tom.

59
Sympathy for the poor
old slave creates a desire
for swift revenge in the
heart of the boy whom
Uncle Tom refused to 
        whip.

60
In darkness and sorrow,
Uncle Tom still has faith
that God has not forsaken
          him.

61
"Young Massah George
has come! The Lawd
has given me the victory.
Glory be to His name.
I die content knowin'
you all did not forget
   old Uncle Tom."

62
- by virtue of the power in me
vested - all persons held as
slaves shall be thenceforward
and forever free - upon this 
act I invoke the considerate
judgement of mankind and
 the gracious favor of
     Almighty God.
