After being born a free man in Upstate New York, Solomon Northup was tricked into capture by two white men who then sold him into slavery in 1841. From there, as detailed in his compelling memoir Twelve Years a Slave, Northup faced considerable cruelties and privations at the hands of his owners, from whom he kept the truth of his life before enslavement. Published less than a decade before the first shot of the Civil War and in the year prior to Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Northup’s account contributed yet another compelling voice to the abolitionist cause.
