Your article on Matthew C. Perry incorrectly states that Alfred T. Mahan was head of the US War College in 1855. In 1855, Mahan was still a student at Annapolis and wasn’t head of the Naval War College until 1885. The Naval War College wasn’t even created until 1884.

Thank you, Joe, for your feedback. That paragraph about Mahan does seem misplaced! The article is being revised.
