    Summary: 
    Solomon Northup, born a free black in New York State in 1808, was kidnapped in Washington, D.C., in 1841, and spent most of the next 12 years as a slave on a Louisiana cotton plantation. His years in servitude were filled with abuse, apprehension, and a profound fear for his life. Northup's years in captivity are recounted here, as are his attempts to bring charges against the men who originally abducted him. An educated man when he entered slavery, Northup was able to write about the institution as both an outsider and as one of its victims. The result was a detailed and accurate description of slave life and plantation society.
