    Notes 
    • (From the work of Allen Wallace)

      William P. Wallace was probably William Pickney Wallace because his nickname was "Pink". He was killed in the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863. William and his brother, Leonard Harris, enlisted May 27, 1861 in Company C, 23rd NC Regiment of the Confederate Army (the 23rd Regiment, commanded by Colonel D. H. Christie, was a part of Brigadier General Alfred Iverson's Brigade, of Major General R. E. Rode's Division of the Second Corps, commanded by Lieutenant General R. S. Ewell). There is no record of the burial site of William. It is likely that is was in a common grave near the battlefield.

      A bronze tablet on a granite pedestal standing on North Confederate Avenue commemorates the loss of lives of Iverson's brigade on the Gettysburg battlefield. It was near this site which is north & west of the town, on July 1, 1863 the first day of the battle, that the brigade suffered heavy losses of men killed or captured. William was killed this day.
