24. ADAM4 WALLACE (PETER3, PETER2, SIR WILLIAM1) was born 1755 in Lexington, Rockbridge, Virginia, USA, and died May 29, 1780 in Waxhaw, Union, South Carolina, USA.

Notes for A
DAM WALLACE:
Adam Wallace the Captain of a Rockbridge Company in the 10th Virginia and was killed by Tarleton's Troops, while bravely fighting against fearful odds at the Waxhaw, SC, May 29, 1780. His sword or espontoon, used on that bloody day was in the possession of John A.R. Varner of Lexington, VA a descendant of his brother Samuel a few years ago. Wallace's company was composed of 50 Rockbridge men. Col Buford's Reg had been detached from the Northern army and ordered to go to the relief of the beleaguered garrison at Charleston, SC.

On their way they learned that Gen Lincoln had capitulated and Col Buford was ordered to fall back again toward the north. Cornwallis hearing of Buford's retreat sent his dashing unscrupulous Cavalry officer, Col Tarlton, with 300 picked men in pursuit and after a forced march of 100 miles he over???? Col Buford at Waxhaw, SC. Before Buford and his Virginians could prepare for the attack the British cavalry was up on them from front and rear and both flanks. The Virginians delivered their fire, but before they could relaod Tarlton's cavalry men were on them with their pistols and swords. Out of 400 men of Buford's command 300 were killed or wounded. The wounded were hacked to pieces in the most inhuman manner.

It was in this terrible encounter that Capt Adam Wallace fell. He was a young man of 25 and stood 6'2" in his stockings the very picture but young Wallace disdained to flee and standing his gouund met steel with steel. His trusty sword was wielded with tremendous vigor and he managed to kill a number of Tarlton's dragoons before he received the fatal blow which ended his noble young life.

Four brothers of young Andrew to wit, Malcolm, Samuel, Andrew and James (or Hugh), sons of Peter Wallace, Jr. and Martha Woods, his wife sacrificed their lives for the independence of their country. In a speech delivered in the Virginia House of Delegates by late Governor James MacDwell occurs this sentence concerning the brave young soldier who owned that sword.

"That dark and dismal page in the history of the Revolution, that carnival of cruel and unjustifiable slaughter, stamped with the name of Waxhaw, is illuminated only by the splendid heroism of a soldier from the valley of Virginia, whom I am proud to claim as a kinsman, Captain Adam Wallace of Rockbridge." Of all the members of the Wallace-Woods Clans, none had a nobler record in the great struggle for freedom from the British yoke, than did Peter Wallace, Jr. and his wife Martha Woods who gave five brave sons to that sacred cause: Samuel, Malcolm , Andrew, James (or Hugh) and Adam. (Woods-McAfee Memorial, by Rev. N.M.W.)
