- Uncle Tom’s Cabin – by Harriet Beecher Stowe
The year 1877 closed the era of Reconstruction and opened up another epoch in the nation’s history. From that year we may say that a new nation was created and new policies adopted. With the North and the South once more welded together and the old questions about slavery and states’ rights shelved, the people turned with astonishing energy to settle other problems. The keynote of this movement was expansion. Expansion in commerce and expansion in territory. This movement and the accompanying issues and challenges were dealt with during the administration of Presidents Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland.
