Gettysburg Address Click for Gettysburg Address
O Captain! My Captain! Captain! My Captain! Our fearful trip is done; The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring: But O heart! Heart! Heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. Walt Whitman wrote in response to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865.
