Lewis J. Wallace enlisted as a Private on 13Oct1862 at 32 years of age at New York City, NY. He was mustered into Company A, 14th NY Cavalry, on 24Nov1862.

According to official records, Lewis J. Wallace deserted the same day, 24Nov1862; cite Historical Data Systems.

According to local historic lore, Lew "Indian Jack" Wallace fought 4 years in Civil War.

Regardless, Private Lewis J. Wallace is buried in one of the two Grand Army of the Republic sections.

Perhaps, the fact that Lewis J. Wallace was either
  • African according to the 1885 Jamestown, Colorado, census
  • part Indian according to the Boulder Genealogical Society's biography
  • may have been 42 years of age
    may have mitigated the desertion, if it occurred.
