26/03/1892 Poet Walt Whitman dies at 72

In his later years, Whitman's health significantly declined, which lead to his death in Camden, New Jersey. Due to bronchial pneumonia, his lungs diminished to one-eighth of their normal breathing capacity. More than 1000 people came to see his body, before the burial. He was buried in a tomb, at Harleigh Cemetery in Camden.
