The Day Carl Sandburg Died

From an impoverished youth on the prairie of Illinois to the halls of Congress and international notoriety, Carl Sandburg’s life was a tale of perseverance and success. During his lifetime he was revered, becoming one of the most successful writers of the 20th century, but when he died in 1967, his legacy suffered an unusual and inexplicably fast decline. His work was disparaged and his remarkable life all but forgotten.
