QuestionUserControl Pin

I'm creating a chess game.

The board is made up of a grid of user controls called BoardSqaure:
<UserControl x:Class="Chess.UI.WPF.Controls.BoardSquare"
             xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
             xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
             xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" 
             xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008" 
             xmlns:local="clr-namespace:Chess.UI.WPF.Controls"
             mc:Ignorable="d" 
             d:DesignHeight="300" 
             d:DesignWidth="300">
    <ContentPresenter Content="{Binding Piece}"/>
</UserControl>
and
namespace Chess.UI.WPF.Controls
{
    public partial class BoardSquare : UserControl
    {
        public BoardSquare()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        public static readonly DependencyProperty PieceProperty =
                    DependencyProperty.Register("Piece",
                    typeof(PieceBase),
                    typeof(BoardSquare),
                    new PropertyMetadata(null));

        public PieceBase Piece
        {
            get { return (PieceBase)GetValue(PieceProperty); }
            set { SetValue(PieceProperty, value); }
        }
    }
}

The DP Piece will hold an instance of PieceBase, which can be King, Queen, Rook.. etc.

To load the board in the code behind I'm trying to do
private void SetupBoard()
{
    // Do this for the first 2 and last 2 rows for initial set up
    BoardSquare square = board.Children.Cast<BoardSquare>().First(e => Grid.GetRow(e) == 0 && Grid.GetColumn(e) == 0);
    square.Piece = new RookBlack();

    square = board.Children.Cast<BoardSquare>().First(e => Grid.GetRow(e) == 0 && Grid.GetColumn(e) == 1);
    square.Piece = new BishopBlack();

.
.
.

}

However the pieces never shows up.

What am I doing wrong here?
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
