We have a teacher who found the quote below in Walt Whitman's 'Memoranda during the war'. Whitman clearly indicates it as a quote but doesn't give the source, which is what she is looking for. Thanks for any help!

"fly the flag of practical industry and business, and adopting the great ideas of America with faith and courage, developing their resources, providing for education, abandoning old fictions, leave the Secession war and its bygones behind, and resolutely draw a curtain over the past.
