    That's as much of a national treasure as any civil war relic you could have found...

    Thanks so much for this thread! Kudos for your efforts!

    I have nephews and nieces in Redding (California) and plan to definitely see the exhibit in person.

    The museum is "temporary" at this time and there will be a groundbreaking for the permanent one soon and more of Mr. Wallace's items will be on display at the permanent museum close to the Redding airport.

    Great find and even greater story.

    Three links to add to the story. Link to a photo he took before the war, story in the news of getting hit at Pearl, and a story about the museum with the display.

    I just read this entire thead and was at the edge of my seat the whole time. It has been mentioned several times in here that a book should be written, well I believe one has and it is right here. You definately deserve kudos for all your work and diligence. Most would have sought profit. Thank you very much!!!!!

    OMG! That's Awesome! That's a find of a life time! I'm so glad that guy didn't take everything to the dump! There's a lot of history there. I'm glad the right person came along and did the right thing! Your The Best! That's got to be in the top 5 of TNet's best finds, if not the best!

    Great Job!!!
