Seven Score and Three Years and a Day Ago
July 04, 2006
For the 4th, a fading photograph of Colonel James Wallace, my great great grandfather, to whose participation in the Battle of Gettysburg on July 3, 1863, I have previously referred.
Enjoy and preserve the blessings of your Independence, this and every day, fellow Americans.
I did not read your previous post about your very interesting ancestor(albeit a Yankee).
Fascinating stuff. Have you been to Gettysburg? I can imagine it gives you a strange feeling to walk on the ground where your gg grandfather must have fought for his life.
My own great great grandfather fought for Company B, Burns Missouri Regiment of Infantry, Parsons Brigade - as listed on his Application of Indigent Soldier of the late Confederacy for pension under the act of May 12, 1899.
I know so very little about him, just a scant few family stories. He was never at Gettysburg, however.

I'm very interested in Col. James Wallace, of Cambridge, MD. I believe that the camp at Cambridge was called Camp Wharton? Do you know where it was located. I have some idea, but am search for verification. Appreciate any help or clues you might have!!
