Based on feedback from readers of the April 17 Magazine article about the Photographic History Collection of the National Museum of American History, museum curators have corrected their identifications of two of the photographs: Alexander Gardner, not Mathew Brady, created the portrait of Ulysses S. Grant on Page 13 in 1864 or 1865, not in 1862. The photograph labeled "Civil War Drummer Boys" on Page 21 was probably taken at a reunion or reenactment sometime around 1900, not during the war.
