Excerpt from Philip Kearny: Soldier and Patriot, an Address Delivered Before the New-Jersey Historical Society

I have been able to learn little of his childhood and youth. His schoolmates speak of him as a delicate boy, averse to violent sports, and holding himself somewhat aloof from promiscuous companion ship. He was not a student, nor apparently in anywise ambitious of distinction.

One relative, himself an enthusiast in military literature, represents him as having always had the greatest interest in those matters. Together, he says, they studied the battles of great captains, and with mimic soldiers fought them over again addressing themselves with industry to master the details of the engagements of Caesar Marlborough, and Napoleon, and, with maps and models before them, repeating the strategic moves upon which the fate of nations so often hung.
