Abstract
As a young teenager, Mennonite conscientious objector, Don Regier, read the book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, by Harriet Beecher Stowe, which solidified his belief that war could never be justified. When called to fight in the Second World War, Regier could not agree to pick up arms, no matter how great the cause.
