Any indications why he went to Memphis, and what he got up to there?

I suggest you obtain "Alexis in America: A Russian Grand Duke's Tour, 1871-187
 By Lee A. Farrow
2014, Louisiana State University Press.
He stayed at the Peabody Hotel,  was entertained at a lavish party.  Did nothing for 2 days, resting up and relaxing with his entourage.  Monday he toured the city, then another lavish ball at the Peabody.  He met Jefferson Davis.  He left on the steamer "The Great Republic"

Hi!! i was wondering about this portrait

http://www.alexanderpalace.org/jewels/gda.html

It says that he s Alexei, but clearly its not him,  but his brother, Vladimir Alexandrovich.

Does anybody knows why the museum got it bad labeled? Thanks in advanced!

Why the error by authors?
