About the Authors

The AuthorsCharles H. Coleman, Ph.D. was the Chair of the History Department of Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois. The main building on the campus is named after him and is called Coleman Hall. He spent more than ten years researching the life and background of Thomas Lincoln, visiting many states and even England. Professor Coleman is also the author of other books, including one on Abraham Lincoln. Another of his books was an American history textbook, America’s Road to Now, that included descriptions of the invasions of native lands and the many broken treaties with Native Americans, such as those likely contributing to the killing of Thomas Lincoln’s father.

The daughter of Professor Coleman, Mary Coleman, compiled this book.
