Celebrate the 200th birthday of Brooklyn’s native son and poet, Walt Whitman, through the lens of the people he worked with, wrote about, and knew best. You’ll visit two brothers, one a Union soldier and the other a Confederate, whom Walt Whitman attended to as a Civil War volunteer nurse; McDonald Clarke, the “Mad Poet” who inspired Whitman; Gabriel Harrison, the photographer of an iconic image of Whitman known as “the Christ likeness,” and many more.
