Surprisingly, because of the snow and scheduling conflicts, this is our first appearance at a bookstore after more than 30 book-related events. We’re delighted to be at our local, neighborhood emporium of books, the University of Pennsylvania’s book store in the midst of the campus. We’ll get there about 6:30 and probably stay about an hour or so.

Meet the Authors

When they are not writing, Dan Biddle and Murray Dubin love to talk -- especially about the book. Invite them to speak to your book club, church, college class, civil war commemoration, fraternal group, library event, historical association meeting and more.

Video Introduction



We like to talk. Our publicist put us in front of a video camera, asked three questions and then crossed his fingers. We're probably a little too serious at the beginning, but we loosen up as the video goes on.

A Call to Arms

This broadside is eight feet high and was seen on windows in downtown Philadelphia in June, 1863, as black leaders called a meeting to convince black men to join the Union Army prior to Gettysburg.
