QUESTION: In your photo section, under "Leaders", why are there so many Leaders
Although we have made a dent in the Civil War sites and battlefields, the
leaders are woefully under-represented. To address this, let's say a little about
our policy for this site. We try to have at least one or two
current photographs on the pages in the photograph section. When we get a few current photographs regarding a subject,
we then search the digital
collections for some corresponding 19th century images. Then we make the page. To
date, only the Lincoln section does not have one or two current photographs.
QUESTION: I have found a spelling error on your site. Why?
Our site contains over 200,000 different words. Obviously, entering that many words will lead to
occasional errors. So if you run across a spelling error, or factual error, or just
want to comment, please
contact us. We will appreciate it.
QUESTION: How often do you revise this site?
Regularly. If the revision is significant, we place an entry on the
What's New page. However, we are constantly making minor
corrections or replacing photographs with better ones, which do not make the
What's New page. So be sure to use your
"reload" or "refresh" browser button to make sure you see the latest version of the
page you're viewing.
QUESTION: What is the difference between pages in the
Pending Section and pages marked "Under
The "Under Construction" and "Pending" entries are linked to a page which
describes how we define "Under Construction" and "Pending" as used on this site.
