George Lippard
Birth: Apr. 10, 1822
Nantmeal Village
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1854
Philadelphia
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

Author. He authored the works "The Ladye Annabel (1842), "The Belle of Prarie Eden" (1844), "Legends of Mexico" (1847), and "Legends of Revolution" (1847). However, his most important works are considered to be "New York - Its Upper Ten and Lower Million" and "The Monks of Monk Hall", both of which were reprinted in 1970. His works are considered by many to have been a catalyst to awakening future President Abraham Lincoln to the plight of slaves. He also founded the "Brotherhood of the Union". Originally interred in Odd Fellows Cemetery in Philadelphia, he was re-interred at Lawnview Cemetery in 1950. (bio by: Mark Maxwell)
