Piece of Civil War journalism added

We have added a transcription and images of "City Photographs—No. VII," a piece of Civil War-era journalism that Whitman published in the New York Leader in 1862. When the Whitman Archive edited Whitman's Civil War journalism a number of years ago we were unable to obtain images of the issue in which this installment appeared. We have since received images, courtesy of the New-York Historical Society. The piece is the final installment of Whitman's "City Photographs" series, which appeared in the Leader from March–May 1862. It has been transcribed, encoded, and annotated.
