He served in the "old wars", that is, the wars between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. He enlisted in company F of the First Regiment on 1 December 1846.

He served in company B of the 20th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. The company was mustered in on 30 April 1861, and the regiment was mustered out on 24 July 1861. He served as Captain. [sources: 4, 13, 16, 32, 33, 45]

On 20 August 1861, the War Department authorized him to recruit an infantry regiment. He began recruiting a regiment by 29 August 1861. A recruiting poster for company K of his regiment, commanded by Charles L Brown, dated 2 September 1861, describes his regiment as a regiment of "Sharp Shooters". His regiment was camped on Islington Lane, across from Odd Fellows' Cemetery, not far from Colonel Gregory's. On 31 August 1861, he advertised a meeting of company commanders for 11 AM. [sources: 1 (page 186), 19, 29, 30, 31, 32, 40, 42]

On 25 September 1861, the Philadelphia Press reported that his regiment had 600 men in it, and would be one of the "first now forming in this city to leave for the seat of war". Their regiment headquarters had been used by Colonel Chantry's regiment--but had been thoroughly cleaned before Wallace moved in (!). [source: 41]

On 29 June 1862, he, along with the other commissioned officers in the regiment (except Colonel Gregory), signed a statement denying accusations that they were on the verge of open mutiny, that the regiment had been reduced to 400 men, and that Colonel Gregory was too lenient to Confederates and too harsh to men in the regiment. [source: 26]

He presided over a general court martial, in Alexandria Virginia, formed by special order 157, Headquarters, Military District of Washington, 9 August 1862. It was originally to meet at the corner of 19th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC, at 10 o'clock on Monday 11 August 1862. It was then moved to Alexandria Virginia.
