John E. Love, a Bataan Death March survivor who led a campaign to change the caption on a historic photo from The Associated Press, has died at a retirement home in Albuquerque, N.M.

Gerry Lightwine, pastor at the home, La Vida Llena, says Love died Monday. He was 91.

Love was one of 75,000 Filipino and American soldiers taken captive by the Japanese in World War II when U.S. forces surrendered in the province of Bataan and Corregidor Island in April 1942.

Love later worked to change the caption on one of the most famous photos in AP's library about the march. The photo, thought to be of the Bataan Death March, actually was an Allied POW burial detail.

The AP corrected the caption in 2010, 65 years after the image was first published.
