    Northup's only written work is his autobiography, Twelve Years a Slave: Narrative of Solomon Northup. A Citizen of New York, kidnapped in Washington City in 1841, and rescued in 1853, from a cotton plantation near the Red River in Louisiana (1853), Northup's slave narrative, the tale of a free African American man who is kidnapped, sold into slavery, and lives as a slave for 12 years, was not only a best seller for its genre and time; it was revolutionary.
