Whitman and Lincoln

Learners determine if Lincoln and Whitman ever met and write a dialogue between the two men. In this Whitman and Lincoln lesson, students read Whitman's poem "Beat! Beat! Drums!" and connect it to the events of Lincoln's presidency. Learners listen to James Grant's modern song "Such Was the War" and imagine what Lincoln's reaction would be. Students write a letter from Lincoln to Whitman regarding the song.
