I am taking a course on Modern American Military History at my college and that is by textbook. According to Stewart, He was born in 1880. See p. 237. I am new to editing, so hope this is helpful.
INITIAL ARTICLE ON WALTON WALKER
I wrote the initial article, basing it on my readings about the Korean War, including but not limited to the references listed at the bottom of the article page. Not being versed in the computer embellishments to make it more "reader friendly," such as section headings, hyperlinks, etc., I realize it may appear a bit drab and old-fashioned. I hope to return to it, in the not too distant future, to "dress it up" and make it more...modern.
However, I welcome any discussion or debate from anyone about Walker or the Korean War. The men from all sides, and the civilian victims, from both North and South Korea, deserve to be remembered, and commemerated. As the title of Clay Blair's fine history(one of my references) suggests, what happened in Korea between 1950 and 1953 has largely been forgotten, if not in the Koreas, certainly in the United States and the rest of the world.
Let us try and correct that situation here and in other places.

- Beau, you may want to look at David Halberstam's book, "The Coldest Winter". It gives insights into General Walker's performance and command decisioms including his interaction with MacArthur and Almond. William L. Schlotterer 04:46, 16 November 2007 (UTC) Will
I took a stab at copy editing this article- I mostly sought to make the wording more neutral and non-analytical. Some of the deleted statements can be added back if they are backed up with some citations.Wkharrisjr (talk) 16:57, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
