Day early, but oh well.
I wonder if he was named in honor of the more legendary Scottish warrior, or if this was just a coincidence.

. On July,30, 1864 Four companies from General Stephen Elliot's brigade were blown up at Petersburg in what became the battle of the Crater Gen. Elliot was wounded preparing a counterattack.Col. Wallace was temporarily appointed brigade commander and took over command and led the brigade for the duration of the War. This brigade command was a temporary promotion until the wounded Elliot returned but Elliot was again wounded before he could resume commsnd.I'm assuming the brigade was the 18th South Carolina.

While he was Lt. Col.his colonel in the 18th South Carolina was Col. James M. Gadbury. Gadbury was killed at 2nd Manassas and Wallace was promoted to Colonel.
