Biography   James Walker


James Walker, a painter of military battles and illustrator, was born in Northamptonshire, England on June 3, 1818.  In 1823, Walker immigrated with his family to the United States and settled on the Hudson River at Albany, New York.  A painting for which he remains known is a large panorama, completed 1870, of the Battle of Gettysburg.  Showing the clash of Union and Confederate forces on the climactic third day, the work was first shown in Boston in March of 1870.  A reviewer wrote that it was "at once a fine work of art and a wonderful illustration of the battle's history, the position of every regiment and battery being defined on a battle-field several miles in extent." (Charleston-Renaissance Gallery).
