Date: Probably around 1862
Place: Unknown, probably New York
Photographer: Alexander Gardner or Mathew Brady
Note: Whitman is wearing what he called his "night-dress" shirt, which he often wore for Gardner photos. Whitman's hair and dress in this photograph are very similar to the photograph Whitman referred to as having "a sort of Moses in the burning bush look" (Saunders #16).
