Twelve Years A Slave


Having been born a freeman, and for more than thirty years enjoyed the blessings ofliberty in a free State-and having at the end of that time been kidnapped and sold intoSlavery, where I remained, until happily rescued in the month of January, 1853, after abondage of twelve years--it has been suggested that an account of my life and fortuneswould not be uninteresting to the public. Since my return to liberty, I have not failed to perceive the increasing interestthroughout the Northern States, in regard to the subject of Slavery. Works of fiction,professing to portray its features in their more pleasing as well as more repugnant aspects,have been circulated to an extent unprecedented, and, as I understand, have created afruitful topic of comment and discussion. I can speak of Slavery only so far as it came under my own observation--only so far asI have known and experienced it in my own person. My object is, to give a candid andtruthful statement of facts: to repeat the story of my life, without exaggeration, leaving itfor others to determine, whether even the pages of fiction present a picture of more cruelwrong or a severer bondage

In particular interest to this anthology, Northup describes the food and diet allotted to slaves at that time, as well as the back breaking labor that was necessary on the plantations to grow their crops of sweet potatoes and corn. He notes the method of killing and preserving pigs, of cattle wandering through the swamps, and the vegetables that were reserved for the master's household. Northup also found himself working in a sugarcane field at one point, and he describes the constant toil involved in the production. His story offers the reader a glimpse into the real world of slavery and how food was produced.
