Special thanks to Linda Paul who allowed us to use excerpts from her documentary "Jennie's Secret", which she produced for NPR and Transom.
We incorrectly included a story about Civil War veteran Albert Cashier in a podcast series about women who won wars. Cashier, whose birth name was Jennie Hodgers, enlisted in the Illinois Infantry as a man when he was 18. His inclusion in the series was not in keeping with Washington Post style which states that people should be referred to by their current identity. We have since removed the episode from the series and made some corrections to pronoun usage within the episode and online to adhere to Post style.
