Walt Whitman High School
May 31, 2019
Today's program could not have been more perfectly timed. No only was there NO RAIN but today's date marked the 200th Birthday of Walt Whitman. The Good Grey Poet wrote a great deal of poems & prose on the Civil War and served three years in the hospitals of Washington City as a nurse. Less than 1/4 a mile from us, the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association was holding a massive part at his birth home which still stands today.
