WALT WHITMAN’S Drum-Taps occupies a unique place in American literature
WALT WHITMAN’S Drum-Taps occupies a unique place in American literature. It is by common consent the only enduring literary work about the Civil War based on firsthand experience, in Whitman’s case his work in the field hospitals in and around Washington where he tended the sick and the dying. Most of the poems composed in immediate response to the war have faded away; the poems of Drum-Taps are still widely read and taught.

Whitman went to public school until he was 12 years of age, at which point he took up working and learned the trade of a printer. The book was once again a financial failure and Whitman went into a period of bankruptcy and unemployment for a number of years. In 1861, with the outbreak of the American Civil War, Whitman traveled to Washington, . to work as a volunteer nurse for wounded soldiers.
