This poem is a very realistic analogy of how when someone dies, their
issues will eventually be forgotten. Sandburg begins with someone most
everyone in the Union loved and who he enjoyed writing about, Abraham
Lincoln. The copperheads were people in the Union who opposed the civil
war and wanted an immediate halt to it, thus not supporting Lincoln. This
along with Lincoln’s assassin symbolized the climax of his life and what it
represented. When he died, his story was no longer a recent one, thus
cooling down as a topic in society by sitting in the “cool tomb”. Sandburg
then turns too Ulysses S. Grant, another president of the United States.
Grant was another well-known figure but his story was one of infamy: He
appointed his wartime hero friends too office who were very corrupt and
stole money from the government. In the end though, he eventually died and
just like Lincoln, society began to move on as his issues cooled in the
“cool tomb”. Continuing on, Sandburg then comments on Pocahontas and then
the common human and each of them end up in the same place, a cool tomb, no
longer the hot topic in society. The poem is conveying that no matter how
famous and rich you may be, the finish line for you is still the same as
for any other man. Sandburg spent time as both a hobo and a well known
literature figure and he recognized the gap and expressed his knowledge in
this poem the frank ending of life for everyone.
