In 1913, after several years of tramping about the country and writing poetry, Lindsay published "General William Booth Enters into Heaven," in the fourth issue of Poetry. The poem, a tribute to the founder of the Salvation Army, brought him instant fame. The Review of Reviews praised it as "perhaps the most remarkable poem of a decade." In his column for Harper's, William Dean Howells called it a "fine brave poem."
