Remembering a Forgotten Hero

Author’s Note:

This biography of O.V. Catto is based on the research and writing of Dan Biddle and Murray Dubin, co-authors of Tasting Freedom: Octavius Catto and the Battle for Equality in Civil War America, published by Temple University Press in 2010.

This publication was paid for by a grant from the Pennsylvania Abolition Society and donations from the generous organizations featured in the advertisements section on the final pages.

The design work was done by Stephen Megargee, editing by Murray Dubin and Tim Wood. The Abraham Lincoln Foundations acted as fiscal agent, and every type of help was provided by the indomitable V. Chapman- Smith.
