Marks: 
printed: in red above image: "UNCLE TOM'S CABIN" printed: in red below image: "ELIZA CROSSES THE OHIO"
Gallery Label: 
This child's plate depicts the most frequently dramatized scene from Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, the antislavery novel that became an instant best seller upon its publication in 1852. After her five-year-old son Harry is sold into slavery, the fugitive Eliza flees to the free north across the ice floes of the Ohio River, carrying Harry in her arms. Stowe described the harrowing flight in vivid detail: "The huge green garment of ice on which she alighted pitched and creaked as her weight came on it, but she stayed there not a moment. With wild cries and desperate energy she leaped to another and still another cake;--stumbling-leaping-slipping-springing upwards again! Her shoes are gone-her stockings cut from her feet-while blood marked every step; but she saw nothing, felt nothing, till dimly, as in a dream, she saw the Ohio side, and a man helping her up the bank."
