From Library Journal
Historian Brown's unusual biography of one of the lesser-known Confederate generals presents a well-rounded view of Walker as a soldier, businessman, politician, and family man. At the beginning of the Civil War, Walker was one of the most experienced military officers to leave the regular army and join forces with the Confederacy. However, his intemperate resignation from the Confederate Army in 1861 over promotions to younger and less experienced officers kept him from ever achieving the rank or fame that he desired. He later returned to the army and participated in numerous battles, as commander of Walker's Brigade and Walker's Georgia Division, from Chickamauga until his death at the Battle of Atlanta. The author attempts to show how Walker's Southern birth and mores influenced most of his decisions both in the military and family. An authoritative work for Civil War and Southern history collections.

The Union General McPherson who was also killed in the course of this same battle when he was trying to destroy Atlanta also has a monument relatively close by though it is much nicer and is finely maintained. I often wonder why that is so.
