DESCRIPTION: The world has known untold numbers of
great historians. From ancient days, there have been those who recognized the
value of preserving a record of people, places, and events. These efforts have,
for the most part, been completely unselfish in nature.
True historians are not seeking to make a name for themselves. Their reward is
the simple preservation of the historical record that will instill a knowledge and
pride that comes from knowing "from whence we came."
Garnett R. Walker, the premier historian of Wayne County, Kentucky was such a
Mr. Walker spent the major part of his life, in his words, "dabbling" in
Wayne County history. Those of us who have benefitted from his "dabbling" know that his research went
far beyond a surface research of Wayne County
He carefully researched his subject and, with the spirit and skill of a master teacher, interpreted and communicated
that history in a way to inspire us and instill pride in our heritage.
In 1961, Garnett wrote ONE BRIEF DAY to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War.
He faithfully records the effect the war had on the people of Wayne County. Every person acquainted with Wayne County
history will be able to relate to this publication.
In this memorial edition of the work he published, we have sought to remain faithful to the original text.
The reader will find some of the statements "dated" in that those statements were ture at the time they were written.
We have not changed many of those statements, desiring to let the reader experience the full effect of of Mr. Walker's writing
We have added many photographs and other visual items that we hope will enhance your reading enjoyment of
this important work.
May the memory of Garnett R. Walker remain alive in the minds and hearts of all
those who love Wayne County history!
