Memoranda During the War
By: Walt Whitman
Civil War Journals, 1863-1865
While searching for his brother during the Civil War, Walt Whitman found his vocation as a volunteer nurse in the military hospitals of Washington, D.C. Whitman recorded the sights and sounds he encountered, including soldiers’ anecdotes of recent battles and army life, their last words and final messages, and his own reflections on the conflict’s day-to-day and historical significance. His evocative, poetic reflections offer a unique portrait of a life amid civil war.
