Solomon Northup was a free-born African American from Saratoga Springs, New York. He is noted for having been kidnapped in 1841 . When he arrived with his supposed employers to Washington, DC, they drugged him and sold him into slavery. From Washington, DC, he was transported to New Orleans where he was sold to a plantation owner from Rapides Parish, Louisiana. After 12 years in bondage, he regained his freedom in January 1853; he was one of very few to do so in such cases.

12 Years a Slave: Who was Solomon Northup? There were always those who claimed Northup's tale was an exaggeration, written as anti-slavery propaganda. "After he was freed, there is documentation of his attempt to secure legal redress against his kidnappers. It was a bitter experience for him because in the nation's capital, Washington DC, Solomon's colour meant he wasn't allowed to testify. So the court case got nowhere but the paperwork is now a big help to historians."
