Fitzsimons, Mrs. Neal. "'Uncle Tom' in Montgomery County." Montgomery County Story 18 (May 1975): 1-14.
Annotation / Notes: This article explores the little-known connection between Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin and the story of Josiah Henson, a slave from Montgomery County. Henson's autobiography apparently inspired the author of what became one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century. Fitzsimons provides excerpts from Henson's narrative and surveys the sites in Montgomery County associated with his life.
