This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Portrait, historical, and landscape painter, Charles T. Webber was a leader in Cincinnati art circles during the latter half of the 19th century. Aside from his numerous portraits, he is best known for the historical painting, "The Underground Railroad" around 1893, as a tribute to the work of abolitionists earlier in the century. The painting shows fugitive slaves arriving at the farm of the notable Cincinnati abolitionists Levi and Catherine Coffin and Hannah Haycock leading a group of blacks to freedom at dawn on a cold wintry day. The painting was created for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago, but represents an event that would have occurred much earlier. Levi Coffin, a station master of the Underground Railroad helped more than 3,000 slaves escape to freedom.

Ted Lind from the Cincinnati Art Museum, where the painting "Underground Railroad" is in the collection of, describes the painting, "as an art object, historic document, or an illustration of a great American story. . . . It makes history come alive and can serve to motivate students to see the history of the underground railroad as being the stories of real, flesh and blood people."

Webber was also known for his group portrait of Major Daniel McCook and his nine sons. He visited Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1886.
