Paper title: “Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and Antebellum Women’s Culture”

The Tolson Award goes to a high school student who has written an outstanding paper on a history-related topic (where the topic was determined by the writer and not by assignment). The paper must be 1,500 to 2,500 words and have at least eight references (including primary sources).
