Another veteran crosses the river

From the May, 1908 edition of Confederate Veteran Magazine:

“WALLACE. Virgil H. Wallace, of Kosciusko, Miss., entered into rest on February 12, 1908. He was among the first to enlist for his State in 1861, becoming a member of the Attala Minutemen [sic], 13th Mississippi Regiment, and nobly did his duty as a soldier. He was twice wounded, once at Malvern Hill, and served to the surrender. He was highly esteemed by his comrades, and in 1905 was elected Commander of William Barksdale Camp at Kosciusko.”
