Harold Bloom referred to Whitman as the closest America has to a bone fide saint. He was referring to Whitman's tireless service to soldiers wounded during the "War of Secession", service which began in 1862 and lasted until years after the war ended. A great film or documentary could be made about those desolate years; alas, this is not it. This is basically a lecture … no, a research report that a reasonably intelligent high school student might have written … which, along with selected poetry, is pleasantly but tediously read over period photos, etchings and drawings artlessly intercut with video of Civil War re-enactors on the march. Title cards look like they were culled from an old silent movie, and the DVD images are burned off a faded VHS that shows its age. These thirty minutes seemed longer than Ken Burns' entire Civil War series. Recommended only for insomniacs.
