Celebrate the 200th birthday of Brooklyn’s native son and poet, Walt

one a Union soldier and the other a Confederate, whom Whitman cared for
as a Civil War volunteer nurse; McDonald Clarke, the “Mad Poet” whose
work served as inspiration for Whitman; Gabriel Harrison, a photographer
who captured the iconic image of Whitman known as “the Christ likeness,”
and many more.
