Dinner with Walt - all things Walt Whitman

March 26, 2013

Today marks the 121st anniversary since Whitman’s death. I have an interesting relic I acquired recently that is fitting for today. It’s Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Weekly from April 14, 1892. The paper contains a small article and a  full page of images: Robert Ingersoll delivering his eulogy; Whitman’s casket in the parlor of his home on Mickle St. and three images of the huge gatherings of people at his funeral service, tomb and outside his home. See this post for more information on Whitman’s death.
