  • Mô tả: The conclusion of the correspondence, at least as it exists in the archives, may have come less as a result of Barlow's deployment, though, than as a result of his clandestine marriage to their mutual friend Ruth Baldwin in 1781, and the couple's eventual decision to settle in Hartford, near the Whitmans, the following year, as the war drew to a close and after the couple had finally announced their marriage to Ruth's father.1 By the end of the decade, Whitman and Barlow would both acquire a degree of notoriety; their names would appear in American newspapers up and down the Eastern Seaboard, but for very different reasons. In 1787, Barlow published an epic poem on the discovery of America-The Vision of Columbus-with which he joined Timothy Dwight, John Trumbull, and a few others in a self-created pantheon of Revolutionary literary celebrity known to later generations as the Connecticut Wits.2 One magazine crowed jingoistically: "An appeal to the bar of critical taste, to decide whether the Poets now living in Connecticut, are not equal to any which the present age can produce in the English language, may not, perhaps, be deemed to favour of partiality or indiscretion" ("From the Connecticut Magazine").
