With support from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, we've published 246 additional letters from the post-Reconstruction and the Old Age periods. We've also published Whitman's early journalistic series, "The Sun-Down Papers," with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Great news! The Archive has been awarded grants from the NEH and the NHPRC for work on the 1855 Leaves of Grass and Whitman's old age correspondence.
Ed Folsom and Christopher Merrill are teaching a new open online course, "Whitman's Civil War: Writing and Imaging Loss, Death, And Disaster," from July 18 to September 5, 2016. Registration is free and is available here.
