Summary
Drawing on the searing letters that Walt, George, their mother Louisa, and their other brothers, wrote to each other during the Civil War, and on new evidence and new readings of the great poet, Now the Drum of War chronicles the experience of the Whitman family--from rural Long Island to working-class Brooklyn--enduring its own long crisis alongside the anguish of the nation
Summary
A profile of the Whitman family evaluates how their war experiences reflected the progression of the Civil War, in an account that traces Walt's work as a nurse, his brother George's military service, and their correspondence with other family members
