Publicity video in about section now playable

For some time, the 2004 publicity video about the Whitman Archive was
not playing in web browsers. I updated the sitemap to address this
issue, and the video should now play. The video is linked from
http://whitmanarchive.org/about/articles/index.html

Corrected word spelling in correspondence

In an April 2, 1870 letter from Charles Warren Stoddard to Walt Whitman, Stoddard spelled the word "prose" as "proze."  I've updated the transcription accordingly.

The link to the UNL Libraries Digital Collections at the bottom of the
image gallery page (http://whitmanarchive.org/multimedia/gallery.html)
was out of date. I have updated the link

Correspondence added to Whitman Archive

I have added 63 new letters from the Reconstruction and post-Reconstruction periods. The letters are available on the Whitman Archive at http://www.whitmanarchive.org/biography/correspondence/index.html.

Corrected recipient in February 4, 1881 letter

We had previously listed the recipient of a February 4, 1881 letter from Whitman (loc.04291) as Horace Traubel.  Edwin Haviland Miller, in volume 6 of The Correspondence, identifies the recipient of this letter as Horace Howard Furness.  I have corrected the letter to reflect Miller's identification.

Re: Articles About the Archive Migrated to TEI P5

This post is a follow-up on the changelog entry about the migration of
the About the Archive articles to TEI P5. As part of this work, I made
a few corrections, which I neglected to mention in my earlier post:

*I corrected the title of the National Archives video (previously was
titled "New Trove of Walt Whitman Documents Discovered in the National
Archives; "New Trove" was not part of the title, so I deleted those
words). In addition, I updated the link so that it now goes directly
to the relevant video rather than to the National Archives YouTube
channel home.

*I added information to Matt Cohen's essay, "Transgenic Deformation,"
to indicate that it was first published on the Whitman Archive and had
been delivered as a paper at a meeting of the Modern Language
Association.

*I corrected the link to William Pannapacker's essay, The Walt Whitman
Archive: The Body of Work Electric, which previously returned a file
not found error.

Articles About the Archive Migrated to TEI P5

I have migrated the TEI encoding of the Articles about the Archive to
TEI P5 and have published the new versions of the files
(http://whitmanarchive.org/about/articles/index.html). With this
migration, the articles also now have the more recent Archive styling,
including the metadata box at the beginning of each item.
