Walt Whitman dies age 72


Whitman dies¬†of¬†tuberculosis. He is well cared for as he is dying, and has a nurse by the name of Warry with him when he dies. He doesn’t feel any pain anymore, and is ready to die.

Warry, shift.

Walt Whitman born in West Hills, New York


Whitman is born to Lousia and Walter Whitman, a home builder. He is one of nine children, and has a fairly happy childhood. His family is however somewhat poor so he starts working at a young age.

I had to support my family when I was young.
