We have been asked to be the Constitution Day speakers on Tuesday, Sept. 13, in the Forum Room of the college’s Connector Building.  Sounds like the event is going to start about noon and end about 1:30. We’ll be reading from “Tasting Freedom” and signing books, too. Please stop by if you are in the neighborhood.

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.
