Washington, Sept. 3 (ANI): A Clemson University professor has claimed that the bestselling book of the 19th century, 'Uncle Tom's Cabin', is based on a runaway slave that author, Harriet Beecher Stowe, harbored for a night in her Maine home, shortly before penning the book.

The professor in question, Susanna Ashton, has done an in-depth research on the life of John Andrew Jackson, who escaped from a South Carolina's Sumter County plantation in 1847, CBS News reported.

And, Ashton believes that the anti-slavery novel that fueled the abolitionist cause and helped put the nation on the path toward the Civil War, would never have been written, were it not for that one-night visit.

Ashton has alleged that Jackson shared his stories of brutality of slavery during his brief stop at Stowe's home. (ANI)
