Unfamiliar term[edit]

"Serives"? Copey 2 (talk) 12:40, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Typo fixed. Hal Jespersen (talk) 14:04, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

What was his military background before the Mexican War ?[edit]

Did he go to West Point?

I could not find a record of any military training before Wallace served in Mexico in the volunteer service. I believe in those days the enlisted men elected their officers below the rank of major or so, which is likely here. Don't know for sure, though. Hope this helps, but others around here might find out more. Kresock (talk) 02:26, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
It took me a few tries (early in the morning here :-)), but I've updated it. Hal Jespersen (talk) 14:10, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Middle name[edit]

what is Wallace's middle name, please answer, I'm currently writing an article on Wallace and if I don't find his middle name I'll fail - Shay —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.234.153.184 (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

He did not have a middle name. His name was simply Lewis Wallace. Spacini (talk) 14:43, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
