Checker Game Champion
Charles Francis Barker

Checkers Match, Charles Barker vs Clarence Freeman

Another early American champion in the game of checkers dominated by players from Scotland and England was Charles Francis Barker. He played many of the great checker players from Great Britain and other talented players within the sport in America. Charles Francis Barker was perhaps best known as "Stonewall" Barker.

Charles Barker’s checker games record includes two World Championship matches in which neither James Wyllie nor Richard Jordan could beat him. Charles Barker was a gifted and insightful checker player, whose game thrived on new opposition. Charles Francis Barker was the American Checker Champion at different times throughout his checkers career. His skill and tenacity assisted him in placing second highest player on the American team in the First International Match in 1905 with a plus score of five wins and three losses. This result was a solid success for Barker as his team played against one of the strongest teams of checker masters ever assembled at any tournament. The British team was comprised of both the Scottish and English teams of checkers game masters and consisted of four World Champions and various checkers masters who had been English and Scottish Champions. Set against such formidable opponents, Barker’s win displayed a commendable effort on the checkerboard.

Charles Francis Barker was known as one of the early great American checker players, who crowned his long checkers career by winning the first ever held American National Tournament in 1905. During this checkers game tournament match, he defeated long time nemesis, A. J. Heffner, in the finals, and some have said that this could easily be known as ‘their last battle’ of the many wars they were both involved in ‘over-the-board’.
