WITH its cloud of skirmishers in advance,

With now the sound of a single shot, snapping like a whip, and now an

irregular volley,

The swarming ranks press on and on, the dense brigades press on;

Glittering dimly, toiling under the sun--the dust-cover'd men,

In columns rise and fall to the undulations of the ground,

With artillery interspers'd--the wheels rumble, the horses sweat,

As the army corps advances.

An Army Corps on the March-
The title suggests that an army battalion or squad is on the march. It seems as if the army is pressing on during a battle as Whitman mentions that their are broken shots as if the army is picking off stragglers. “The swarming ranks press on and on”- the battalion presses on as if they were chasing the other army who might be retreating, or who just happens to be weaker. Whitman mentions that the men are dust covered. This might indicate that the men have endured a lot of things prior to and during this event. Walt Whitman captures a lot of detail in this one small scene during this battle; he even mentions the form of the terrain : "In columns rise and fall to the undulations of the ground.” Their are obviously hills because the army is said to frequently appear and disappear in and out of sight. Whitman, if portraying that the army is chasing down a retreating and defeated army, might be asserting that the men on either side are both evil, for chasing down the weakened; and weak, for being chased down instead of standing their ground. Whitman could be pointing out the horrible, merciless acts of the army of the civil war.
