About the Author

Lewis Wallace was born in Brookville, Indiana on April 10, 1827, died in 1905. He worked as a newspaper reporter. Lewis Wallace attended Wabash College in Crawfordsville for eight weeks, later became a lawyer and came to Crawfordsville in 1853. Wallace wanted to marry Susan Elston. But since Wallace was not a very good student when he was younger, he had to prove himself to his future father-in-law. Wallace became a state senator in 1856.

Lewis Wallace served in the Mexican and the Civil War. He organized a group in Crawfordsville called the Zouaves who were getting prepared and trained in case of a war. During the Civil War he was a major general. He stopped the Confederates from capturing Washington, D.C. And he was at the court of the people who shot Abraham Lincoln. He was governor of the New Mexico Territory, also the U.S. Minister to Turkey from 1881 to 1885.

After the war Wallace returned to Indiana to practice law and to write his book, "The Fair God" (1873), told of the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Wallace was appointed governor of New Mexico in 1878. While in office he wrote and published his best-selling book, "Ben-Hur," it was published in 1880 and still is being printed today. Wallace, who served as Minister of Turkey, also published "The Boyhood of Christ" in 1888 and "The Prince of India" (1893). --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
