Meet the Authors: Daniel R. Biddle and Murray Dubin

Tasting-Freedom-cropped“Daniel Biddle and Murray Dubin have brought to life a leader of the Civil War-era struggle against slavery and for equal rights for blacks. This dramatic book not only rescues the intrepid Octavius Catto from obscurity but reminds us that this struggle—and the violent opposition to it—long predated the modern civil rights era.“

-          Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History, Columbia University
