It's not clear to me what you're looking to source. FTM doesn't allow you to source different elements of a fact separately, so you must create separate facts for each detail that appears differently in your sources (e.g., one for the date, one for the place, one for the "description").

I suggested here that you might use the correct spelling in the fact, citing the incorrect spelling in the citation detail, and explaining in your fact notes why you interpret it to be the place with the correct spelling. That's where you can make reference to using wikipedia to determine the correct spelling, but do not use wikipedia to source your fact (i.e., the event that took place there), because Wikipedia isn't the source of that.
