Josiah Henson (1789-1883) was an author, abolitionist, and minister. The public originally believed that Henson's life story was the basis for the character of Uncle Tom in her novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin.

After receiving accusations of misrepresenting slavery in her earlier publication Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Stowe published this work to document the veracity of the depiction of slavery in her novel.
