    • Abstract:
      In this article the author reflects on the time the poet and essayist Walt Whitman spent in Washington, D.C. According to the author, Whitman did not arrive to the Washington area until 1862, when the city had become a mass of hospitals and encampments resulting from the American Civil War. Particular focus is given to how Whitman's exposure to the wounded and to the dead impacted his life and writing. Several of Whitman's works produced during this time are also noted including "Drum-Taps," "This Compost" and "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry."
