About the Edition

Walt Whitman, whose compassion for the wounded and dying soldiers of the American Civil War is well documented, navigates the journey of Two Brothers: One north, One South. The first chapter finds him at the bedside of William Prentiss, a mortally wounded Rebel soldier. As fate has it, William’s brother, Clifton, a Union officer, is being treated in another ward of the same hospital and Whitman becomes the sole link between the brothers. The reader is taken seamlessly from Baltimore before the war, to many battlefields where North and South collide, and to wartime Richmond, where Hetty, Jenny, and Constance Cary are the reigning belles.
