We head northwest into the Andorra neighborhood of Philadelphia and visit with the Cathedral Village retirement community. Our event is at 7:30 p.m. and we’ll be there until about 9 p.m. If you are a relative or a friend of a Cathedral Village resident, please stop by. We’ll be reading, answering questions, and selling and signing copies of the book.

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.
