      Civil War Washington Through the Eyes of a Poet


      Walt Whitman spent ten years in Washington, DC witnessing the
      nation's struggle through the Civil War, President Lincoln's death
      and the long recovery afterwards. What brought him here, and what
      inspired him to stay? Using the good grey poet's own words we will
      retrace his footsteps through the Washington he knew and ultimately
      uncover the traces he left behind.
