Edgar Allan Poe: The Army Years.
Russell, J. Thomas
This issue of the United States Military Academy Library Bulletin reviews the reported facts of Poe's biography from his enlistment at the age of 15 to the termination of his military sojourn. The 1831 and the 1966 Corps of Cadets' subscriptions for Poe's "Poems" are also discussed, and a long-term inaccuracy regarding the poet's West Point experience is corrected, using evidence from the USMA archival documents.
