The devices that Northup uses in order to prove that his accounts of slavery are true is that of being very descriptive and specific in his writing, and also by trying to expose that slavery among certain ethnicities actually happened by fact and, more importantly, his experiences.


Read the book, Northup describes what his goals are for writing 12 Years a Slave (it's in Chapter 1).
