Corrected spacing errors in Civil War correspondence
Ken pointed out three spacing errors in the annotations for the letters from Walt Whitman to William S. Davis of 1 October 1863 and from Walt Whitman to Louisa Van Velsor Whitman of 13 October 1863. I have corrected these errors.
Scholars have long relied on print-based resources that are stable, or that remain more or less constant over time. The Whitman Archive, by contrast, changes frequently as new content is added and as errors are located and corrected. This record of additions and changes to the content to the Archive responds to the challenge of creating a digital resource that can serve as a scholarly reference. It represents an effort to be transparent about our methods and history and to render visible changes that would be otherwise largely invisible. We do not record minor changes to the appearance of the site or temporary server outages.
