Synopsis
It is so interwoven in the history of our country, that, un desirable as a reference or recollection of this particular bygone custom may be, it is nevertheless necessary to be studied in order to form some adequate idea of our Nation sprogress and growth. -T otake in, or to under stand the exact social status of such a people in all its bearings, we can pursue no better course than to live among them, to become for a time one of them, to fall from a con dition of freedom to one of bondage, to feel the scourge, to bear the marks of the brands, and the outrage of manacles. To experience all this was the misfortune of Mr. Northup; and his story, simple and artless, affords an insight and enlists a sympathy far deeper than any work of fiction frhich genius can produce. It is on this account that the publishers have undertaken to issue a new edition of this work. And surely, at this time when the exciting questions of color, of race, and of social standing are forever settled on American soil by the Magna Charta of our common rights, the Constitution surely, now, a reprint of the story of a slave, thrilling in its details, calls for no apology.
