I'm very pleased to call the attention of the list to this forthcoming
biography by my friend and colleague, Nikki Taylor.  As a young man,
Peter H. Clark had connections to all sorts of radicals, active around
labor reform questions as well as abolitionism.  In the Civil War, he
helped to organzie "the Black Brigade," which contributed to the
defense of Cinciinnati.  Afterwards, he participated in the first
efforts to organize a socialist party in the 1870s.
