Storyboard Text

  • Jill and Bill just finished reading "O' Captain My Captain".
  • The captain is dead.
  • By Samuel Cardwell
  • Wow, that was an amazing poem that really made me feel what Americans must have felt after Lincoln was assassinated!
  • But the North had most of the population at the time, 22 million to 5.5 million. Which is 80%. And you can’t include everything in a poem.
  • You are forgetting that the Southerners hated Lincoln and didn’t want him as president, so it wasn’t what America felt.
  • Actually, in the end, some Southerners didn’t hate Lincoln, since he was making sure that the surrender was peaceful.
  •  Whitman still should have mentioned something about the Southerners hating Lincoln.
  • The Richmond Whig, a southern newspaper, even said that Lincoln's death was the “heaviest blow which has fallen on the people of the south.” 
  • You have evidence as well, not fair.
  • I guess your right, the poem does show what America felt after Lincoln’s assassination.
