(10-02Enlarge Gen. W.H.T. Walker, Augusta Museum of History, Augusta, Georgia.
A West Point graduate, this Augusta native was known for his fighting ability and fierce temper. This Model 1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber was made by Ames and was probably first carried by Walker in the Mexican War. It is likely that Walker was wearing the saber and boots when he was killed at the Battle of Atlanta
Gen. Walker is buried on the grounds of the Augusta Arsenal
