This chapter examines the childhood of Thomas L. Kane. It explains that Kane was born in Philadelphia when the city was still an international hub of trade and discusses the enormous influence of Kane's father, John Knitzing Kane, over him. Kane's childhood gave him not only political connections, an upper-class education, and a genteel background, but also a commitment to the Democratic Party, an appreciation for religious diversity, and a romantic respect for those who stood against the crowd.

Keywords:   Thomas L. Kane, childhood, Philadelphia, John Knitzing Kane, political connections, upper-class education, Democratic Party, religious diversity
