We’re heading down to Headhouse Books in the Queen Village neighborhood of  Philadelphia for a reading and signing beginning at 7:30 p.m.  We’ve been to universities, libraries, churches, radio shows and people’s homes, but this is our first stop at a bookstore. Headhouse has been providing books at some of our events and now have invited us to appear at their store.

Connect with Catto's History

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

Click to get a closer look, you can see the name of Octavius Catto at the bottom, as well as his father's.

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.
