Gary Chitwood Walker was born in 1946 in Wytheville, Virginia. He attended Spiller Elementary School, and it was there, when he was in seventh grade, that he first became interested in the Civil War, especially in his home state.
Walker attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute and received a bachelors degree in science. Shortly after graduation, he married his longtime sweetheart Sue Adams. Still passionate about history, Walker began to investigate genealogy. Soon, he wrote The War in Southwest Virginia, and Walker knew that he had found his calling.
An active member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Walker often participates in Civil War reenactments and gives public presentations on the subject. He has written several other books on the Civil War in Virginia, including the historical novel Son of the South. He is also a member of the Civil War Round Table and several other historic and preservation societies.
Walker lives in Wytheville, Virginia, with his wife and two sons.
