John G. Walker Obtains a Pardon

Andy Hall, a descendant of Major General John George Walker, has written an interesting post on his Maritime Texas blog about Walker’s request for a pardon following the war. Walker served during the Antietam campaign as a divisional commander in the Army of Northern Virginia and then he transferred to the trans-Mississippi and took command of the all Texas division that eventually bore his name. Andy discusses Walker's background and his pardon application, and includes his complete pardon file.
