Wallace reminded everyone that he had been appointed governor of Washington Territory in April 1861. However, he was elected to Congress from the territory before he could serve as governor. At that time, what is now Idaho was included in Washington Territory, and the border extended east all the way to the Dakotas.

Wallace had been in Washington D.C. at the time. On the day of the tragic event, he had spoken with the president about an appointee for the Idaho Supreme Court; in fact Lincoln had invit- ed him and Mrs. Wallace to attend the play, "Our American Cousin" that evening. Mrs. Wallace was not feeling well, and so the couple did not go to the play. They first heard the awful news when someone came run- ning down their street, crying, "The president has been shot!" The dayafter the assassi- nation, Wallace had been present at the president's autopsy and requested a lock of Lincoln's hair as a keepsake. He showed the audience the lock of hair, which was inside a small photo case with a picture of Lincoln. Wallace gave a moving account of the funeral procession and how he accompanied the presi- dent's body on the long train journey to Illinois where Lincoln was interred, and showed a photograph of himseff and the group of dignitar- ies who had also accom- panied the body to Illinois. When Wallace had fin- ished speaking and David Leroy resumed his own identity, Leroy said he would take questions, and would do so in or out of character (as Wallace or Leroy). He gave that deci- sion, as well as the first question to Star News editor, Tom Grote. Grote asked whether the lock of Lincoln's hair belonged to Leroy, personally, or if it belonged to the Idaho State Historical Society, etc. Grote asked that the answer come from Governor Wallace; the response was that the hair belonged to him personal- ly. And it turned out (after later one-on-one inquiry) that Leroy had purchased the authentic lock of Lincoln's hair himself, and it did belong to him. (The price was not mentioned, but one can imagine!) Leroy's lock of Lincoln's hair will be on display at an exhibit, about Lincoln's relationship with Idaho, at the State Historical Museum in Boise that opens on November 19.
