Correction to the petition of George W. Riggs

Our initial transcription of the petition of George W. Riggs included two typos, both of which erroneously listed the petitioner’s name as “George N Riggs.” In both instances, the middle initial has been changed from “N” to “W.” The revised petition can be found at the link above.

Emory Hospital Correction

We have corrected a mistake in the introductory essay, “Organization of the Hospitals in the Department of Washington,” available at http://civilwardc.org/introductions/other/hospitals.php. Table 6, “Census of the General Hospitals, Department of Washington, December 17, 1864,” originally indicated that Emory Hospital had only 90 beds. This figure was a typographical error, and Emory Hospital had 900 beds.
