We rise early today and drive south to Delaware to speak to students at the prestigious Tatnall School in suburban Wilmington. This college preparatory institution is a well-known educational diamond in the state. This is the week that Rev. Martin Luther King’s birthday is celebrated and we will be sure to connect Octavius Catto with Dr. King.

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

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.
