Leaves of America: Walt Whitman’s Stories of the Civil War

Presented by Chris Dwyer

Leaves of America takes us through the journey of Walt Whitman and the American Civil War. Whitman has several memoirs recounting his search for his wounded brother, his admiration for Abraham Lincoln, and his love for his country during this gruesome period of American History. With Whitman’s gift for language and first-hand experience, we have some of the most detailed accounts of the Civil War. Complete with projections and storytelling, Leaves blends documentary style film-making and character portrayal into an hour long theatrical experience
