Thomas Wilson was born in Staunton, Virginia five years before the start of the American Civil War, on the 28th of December, 1856. As a young boy, the future president was not in good health and his eyesight required him to wear glasses from an early age. His family expected him to become a minister as was his father and his grandfather. But young Thomas had other plans. By the age of sixteen he entered a New Jersey college that one day would be known as Princeton University.
