I have never seen evidence of cowardice in Tom's character. He is a God loving man, who follows his religious beliefs. The following quotes support this;

"No!" said Tom, firmly. "No! good never comes of wickedness. I'd sooner chop my

right hand off!"


"O, Misse Cassy!" said Tom, throwing himself before her, "for the dear Lord's sake that died for ye, don't sell your precious soul to the devil, that way! Nothing but evil will come of it. The Lord hasn't called us to wrath. We must suffer, and wait his time."
