near Fort Mason. A few years ago an issue of "American Heritage" had
some long-lost photos of the Civil War batteries on Alcatraz. That
garrison was commanded for a time by Capt. William Winder, the son of
a Confederate officer, so he was regarded suspiciously by some.

- A good reason why any published OR quotation needs to be cross checked
against the hard bound!
Guild Press is excellent at accepting typos found in their CD. Send them
Guild Press has done a fantastic job in catching typos, although a few
slipped through. When cross-checked, I find that they were in cases
where the original was printed lightly or blurred.
BTW, I am always amazed at how few typos there are in the original ORs!
Boy, those folk had great spell-checkers on their typesetters!

In this instance I had just cut and pasted the text from the ORs at
www.ehistory.com I have found at other times that there are typos
in their text. I think the material there is scanned in and it is
likel that the optic reader misread things such as an 'r' and a 'v'
as an 'n'.
