Bigfoot Wallace

No frontiersman ever lived in Texas who became so well known as William Alexander Anderson Wallace, better known as "BigFoot Wallace." He was born in Lexington, Virginia, April 3, 1817, and came to Texas shortly after the Battle of San Jacinto won for Texas her independence from Mexico. 

From time to time this magazine has published sketches of this noted frontiersman, but this sketch is a record of some of his thrilling experiences, as related by himself, in his own words and in "Big-Foot's" characteristic style. Wallace was both a hero-frontiersman, and a true Texas “character”. His style of writing is very engaging – you will not be able to put it down.
