The New York 150th Sesquicentennial Committee



This Dust was Once the Man

This dust was once the man,
Gentle, plain, just, and resolute under
Whose cautious hand,
Against the foulest crime in history known in any land or age,
Was saved the Union of these States.

--the Walt Whitman poem, written on Lincoln's assassination,  that CWFMNY member Carmen Delgado alluded to in her talk on October 21, 2009.
