For his service at the February 1862 Battle of Fort Donelson, he was promoted Brigadier General in March 1862. Placed in temporary command of the Union Army of the Tennessee's 2nd division, when the Confederates surprised the Union forces near Shiloh Church, on April 6, 1862, Wallace while leading his men, was struck in the head by a shell fragment and lay mortally wounded. He was carried off the field by his men to a Union hospital near Savannah, Tennessee, where his wife had arrived to attend to him and died a few days later. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
