Description

When Solomon Northup, born a free black man in Saratoga, New York, was offered a short-term job with a circus in Washington, D.C., in 1841, he jumped at the opportunity.  But when he arrived, he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Louisiana.  Finally, with the help of a Canadian abolitionist, he was rescued and reunited with his family in New York.  In this memoir published in 1853, Northup tells the incredible story of his twelve years as a slave.  224 pages.
