Abstract

Explores the similarities and differences between Whitman's Drum-Taps and Thomas Wentworth Higginson's Army Life in a Black Regiment, describing how beneath the "veneer of dislike and disgust" between the two men, "both authors use music to unite communities against a war of national dissolution" and how both "successfully bridge the gap between written and aural modes of communication."
