Description:
 Learn about the life of Civil War general and Hoosier author Lew Wallace, as portrayed by Terry Furgason. Wallace was born in Brookville, died in Crawfordsville and is perhaps best known as the author of Ben Hur. Furgason is a member of the Vernon Greys and 6th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, a Civil War reenactor and a living historian. The Vernon Greys were a part of the 9th Regiment of the Indiana Legion (the state militia) during the Civil War. It was at Vernon that the militia reinforced by troops led by Major General Lew Wallace turned Confederate raider General John Hunt Morgan without a battle and captured some of his men.
