- 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 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:12, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Henry A. Wise
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":

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)
