Whitman's Drum Taps
Washington's Civil War Hospitals
By: Angel Price Walt Whitman 1848 Campbell Hospital Armory Hospital Before the war began, Washington was a relatively rural town with limited medical accommodations. There were no military hospitals and very few medical facilities. Yet by the end of the Civil War there were approximately fifty hospitals marking the Washington landscape. Their beginnings were in the tents of regiments of soldiers. The regulations provided that there be a hospital tent in proportion to the number of men within each regiment. Whitman writes one of the most accurate descriptions of field hospitals in a letter to his mother in 1864: Soldiers were kept in the field hospitals indefinitely and often sent on to Washington after their conditions had so worsened as to make surviving the trip almost impossible. When the regimental tent was full, a nearby home or building was usually commandeered and converted for medical care. Although intended as temporary units, these regimental tents and field hospitals were soon clustered together to make larger accommodations of hospital camps that eventually spotted the city.8

American poet who published the first edition of "Leaves Of Grass," 1855, himself, because he was unable to find a publisher. Born in a farming village, second of nine kids, his Quaker dad was a house builder and he had a very close relationship with his mom, claiming she was "perfect." After receiving only an elementary education, he began omnivorous reading and worked as a printer, journalist and schoolteacher 1832-1845. He became an editor for the Brooklyn Eagle in 1846, but his views supporting abolitionism and free soil resulted in his termination. Offered a job on a newspaper in New Orleans, his two week train trip allowed him to see a large amount of the country, broadening his horizons for his poetry. His first edition of "Leaves Of Grass" was a collection of twelve poems and was hailed by Emerson. Later editions of "Leaves" were revised and enlarged, becoming best sellers in spite of unfavorable regard by critics. In 1862, he moved to Virginia during the Civil War to care for a brother injured in service. The horrors he saw led to his volunteer work in the hospitals of Washington, D.C., staying for 11 years with jobs as the army paymaster and Dept. of the Interior. A stroke in 1873 left him with paralysis, forced him to leave his job and the capitol to live with his brother George in Camden, NJ. Although he grew feeble, he continued to write brief poems, received many visitors from across the country and foreign lands and before his death, he wrote "A Backward Glance O'er Travel'd Roads."

American poet Walt Whitman is generally considered to be the most important American poet of the nineteenth century. He wrote in free verse (not in traditional poetic form), relying heavily on the rhythms of common American speech.
Childhood and early career
Walt Whitman was born on May 31, 1819, in West Hills, Long Island, the second of nine children. His family soon moved to Brooklyn, where he attended school for a few years. Young Whitman took to reading at an early age. By 1830 his formal education was over, and for the next five years he learned the printing trade. For about five years, beginning in 1836, he taught school on Long Island; during this time he also founded the weekly newspaper Long-Islander.

47. Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
Analysis of several of Whitman s works,by Betsy Eikkila, part of an online syllabus.
Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
Contributing Editor: Betsy Eikkila
Major Themes, Historical Perspectives, and Personal Issues
I use the 1855 versions of "Song of Myself" and "The Sleepers" because I think these poems represent Whitman at his unrevised best. I begin with a biographical introduction, stressing Whitman's active engagement as radical Democrat and party journalist in the major political conflicts of pre-Civil War America. The inscription poem "One's-Self I Sing" and his vision of the poet balanced between pride and sympathy in the 1855 Preface serve as a good introduction to "Song of Myself." I usually begin by asking the students to talk about Whitman's free verse technique. What ordering devices does he use in the opening lines to achieve his poetic design: these include repetition, biblical parallelism, rhythmic recurrence, assonance, and consonance. Section 15 is a good illustration of the ways Whitman's catalog technique serves as a democratizing device, inscribing the pattern of many and one. By basing his verse in the single, end-stopped line at the same time that he fuses this linethrough various linking deviceswith the larger structure of the whole, Whitman weaves an overall pattern of unity in diversity. This pattern of many and onethe e pluribus unum that was the revolutionary seal of the American republicis the overarching figure of Leaves of Grass I present "Song of Myself" as a drama of democratic identity in which the poet seeks to balance and reconcile major conflicts in the body politic of America: the conflict between "separate person" and "en masse," individualism and equality, liberty and union, the South and the North, the farm and the city, labor and capital, black and white, female and male, religion and science. One can discuss any of the individual sections of the poem in relation to this conflict. Moments of particular conflict and crisis occur in sections 28 and 38. I ask the students to discuss the specific nature of the crisis in each of these sections. Both involve a loss of balance.

53. Walt Whitman
Student-written biography includes photographs of the poet and a sample of his writing.
Walt Whitman is one of the world's most famous poets. What is memorable about his writing is that he usually doesn't rhyme, yet, he can still make a poem sound just as well. He became well skilled at writing when he was younger, and he wrote for newspapers. Walter lived with a family of eleven. He was involved with many democratic activities. Walt Whitman was born in 1819, near Huntington, Long Island, New York. Walt Whitman lived with a family of eleven. Walt was the second oldest. His fathers name was Walter Whitman. His mother's name was Louisa Van Velsor Whitman. Walt attended a public school until he was eleven. That was the last of formal schooling for him. For a brief time, Walt was an office boy for a physician and then he helped in a law firm. His next job was an apprentice to a printer. In the printing office, Walt learned how to spell, punctuate and acquired the rudiments of prose style. When Walt Whitman was younger, he use to write for his own newspaper called, "Long Islander." He only kept it going for about one year though. Working with newspapers before he started his own, Walt learned how to use the equipment needed for the making of newspapers. Walt was active with many political activities. One of the activities was when the U. S. A. was having a war with Mexico in the middle 1800s. Walt Whitman loved to write poems about Abraham Lincoln. He was also furious at Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Boothe, because Abraham had been a good president. Nobody could ever be just like Abraham.

56. Whitman And Emerson
Ralph Waldo Emerson s July 21, 1855 letter praising Leaves of Grass , and scholarly criticism concerning that letter.
WALT WHITMAN AND RALPH WALDO EMERSON This section of the site includes two letters, one by Emerson and one by Whitman that became a part of the second edition of Leaves of Grass . This exchange began as a private note of encouragement from Emerson, a well-known poet and lecturer, to an obscure journalist at the beginning of his poetic career. The following letter to Whitman from Ralph Waldo Emerson, 21 July 1855 is among the most famous letters ever written to an aspiring writer. Here Emerson suggests the complex foreground that preceded the publication of Leaves of Grass . Without asking Emerson's permission, Whitman gave this private letter to Charles Dana for publication in the New York Tribune on October, 1855. DEAR SIRI am not blind to the worth of the wonderful gift of "LEAVES OF GRASS." I find it the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed. I am very happy in reading it, as great power makes us happy. It meets the demand I am always making of what seemed the sterile and stingy nature, as if too much handiwork, or too much lymph in the temperament, were making our western wits fat and mean.

Walt Whitman Walt Whitman (born Walter Whitman) (May 31, 1819 – March 26, 1892) was an American poet, essayist, journalist, and humanist whose unrhymed, unmetered verse marked a radical departure in poetics and framed the American experience in terms that would greatly influence subsequent literature. Before Whitman, poetry written in America was largely English poetry written on a colonial shore. Whitman's arrival was like the sounding of a liberty bell. Literary critic Harold Bloom has stated that "no Western poet, in the past century and half, not even Browning, or Leopardi or Baudelaire, overshadows Walt Whitman [or Emily Dickinson Whitman's poetry advanced a new aesthetic that boldly fused the poet's persona with America's populist democracy. Leaves of Grass (1855), his most important work, was published within a remarkable five-year period that saw the appearance of other great American classics such as The Scarlet Letter
