The 1860s saw the beginning of a growing recognition of Whitman. The year 1871 saw the publication not only of the fifth regular edition of Leaves of Grass, but also of Democratic Vistas, a book about post-Civil War America. On February 22, 1873, in Camden. Partially recovered, he spent several summers on a nearby farm and traveled extensively in the East, the Far West (1879) and in Canada (1880). He published Specimen Days and Collect (1882) and November Boughs (1888). In 1888, another strike confined him to a wheelchair, but he continued to write and to visit with the many admirers who traveled to Camden.
