Promotion from Brig. Gen. to Maj. Gen.[edit]

Military section: In the comment "Wise served as a Brigadier General in the Confederate Army and afterward was promoted to the rank of Major General." After what? Daytrivia (talk) 00:35, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Fixed above question. Daytrivia (talk) 04:19, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
Wise was never promoted to Major General, as Lee had no authority to appoint general officers. He only appointed him a division commander, succeeding General Bushrod Johnson, as the ranking Brigadier. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.246.237.154 (talk) 20:12, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for adding that; I'll have to look it up. The turns of history are fascinating.--Parkwells (talk) 16:49, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Formatting and Citations[edit]

Links need to be changed to in-line citations for the article to pass any good or featured article reviews.--Parkwells (talk) 16:49, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I can't make the in-line citations work in terms of showing up below the article text.--Parkwells (talk) 17:02, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Washington Jefferson College[edit]

The Link is no longer valid, it should be stricken or find a new source Claymorde (talk) 04:49, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Henry A. Wise[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Henry A. Wise's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "Rice":

  • From Mathews (Augusta): Rice, Otis K. 1986. A History of Greenbrier County. Greenbrier Historical Society, p. 116
  • From Alexander F. Mathews: Rice, Otis K. 1986. A History of Greenbrier County. Greenbrier Historical Society.
  • From Mason Mathews: Rice, Otis K. 1986. A History of Greenbrier County. Greenbrier Historical Society, p. 132

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 22:56, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

I added the reference in question. It should be fixed. The identified source is correct, page number is 264. Newtack101 (talk) 00:46, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
