Walt Whitman spent most of the Civil War aiding wounded soldiers in hospitals in and around Washington D.C. This site is designed to help students and scholars contemplate the relationship between war and memory by investigating "Whitman's Memory"—how Whitman struggled to memorialize common soldiers and how these efforts have shaped memories of him.
