Sebastian Seiler(1810[1]-1890[2]) was a German, an associate of Wilhelm Weitling, a Swiss reformer.[3][4] He was a journalist on the Rheinische Zeitung and a member of the Brussels Communist Correspondence Committee in 1846.[1] Seiler was "a stenographer to the French National Assembly in 1848 and 1849."[5] He joined the Communist League and took part in the 1848-1849 revolution in Germany. Following the suppression of that revolution, Seiler escaped to London, England in the 1850s. From 1859-1860 he was the editor of the Deutsche Zeitung,[6] and he started a weekly paper in 1860, The New Orleans Journal.[4] Seiler later worked for Negro suffrage.[6]
