Tomorrow is the anniversary of Lew’s death in 1905. Lew died at his home in Crawfordsville on February 15. Wallace Scholar Chandler Lighty at the Indiana Historic Newspaper Digitization Project has a great blog post about Lew Wallace’s obituary. The post collects several of Lew’s obituaries from across the country.
Chandler Lighty will be speaking here at the Carriage House Interpretive Center in October as part of our 2014 Civil War Lecture Series. Stay tuned for details on the entire series!
