What is America all about The land of the free and home of the brave Although this infamous quote is true today hundreds of years ago this quote was a lie Not only were some white men not free to do certain things but all blacks were discriminated against greatly and most if not all were slaves Not only is slavery an important issue in Mark Twains novel Huckleberry Finn but also the entire issue of freedom is an important factor Two characters who show a substantial amount of lost freedom in Huckleberry Finn are Huck and Tom Huckleberry Finn demonstrates his loss of freedom in two ways Firstly Huck is forced to live with his Aunt who makes him practice religion and get an education Huck does not want to do this Huck feels he has lost his freedom when his Aunt forces him to do things he doesnt want to Secondly Hucks alcoholic father who rarely visits stops into town and forces Huck to give him his own money Not only does he steal Hucks money but he then decides to take Huck into his own custody and keeps Huck locked up in a spot in the woods Huck is forbidden to leave Huck has his freedom taken away much like a prisoner or a slaveTom a black slave in Mark Twains novel exhibits a strong attitude although his freedom has been taken away from him Although Tom escapes during the novel he still shows an attitude that his freedom is lost Tom an innocent man of any crime has had his freedom taken away for no other reason than the fact that he is black Although Tom is just one example of the many of blacks that were sold into slavery during this time period he is a great example of the loss of freedom most if not all black lost Finally freedom is an important factor in Americas history Huckleberry Finn
