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.
