Later chapters explore the personalized meanings of flags to notable Civil War poets---Julia Ward Howe, Oliver Wendell Holmes, John Greenleaf Whittier, Walt Whitman, and Herman Melville---and analyze their most significant flag-related poems. These chapters explore how the use of the flag differed among the poets, how certain authors' flag constructions changed over time, how various biographical factors contributed to each writer's perceptions of flags, and how flags often signaled an author's views on nationalism, abolitionism, militarism, expansionism, and religion.tU, UI-WHUT Ami WtUir, :!a#39;--~cr^aquot; aquot;aquot;aquot;aquot;aquot;aquot; t? ...
