A Baby Named P.G.T. Walker?

With the surrender of Fort Sumter, Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard became quite the hero in the South.  I am sure that more than a few boys born in the months following were given parts of the general's name.

I remember seeing such a one either at Wilmington, North Carolina's Oakdale Cemetery or Goldsboro, North Carolina's Willowdale Cemetery named P.G.T. Walker.

Well, maybe the last name is not correct.

Others received the name Beauregard.
