Edwin Dearborn: A Family Tree Rich in Literature & American History
As a cousin of famed western author Louis L’Amour, I guess I was bound to break out as a writer sooner or later. Many people do not know that Louis L’Amour’s middle name was Dearborn. Additionally, famed author and anti-slave activist, Harriet Beecher Stowe, is also in my family tree. My grandmother on my father’s side was a Stowe. So my family lineage embraces two great authors.
My uncle from several generations ago was General Henry Dearborn. As a historical note, General Henry Dearborn was personally commended for bravery in battle by George Washington at the Battle of Monmouth, the single largest battle in the Revolutionary War. General Henry Dearborn also served in other battles, such as Bunker Hill, Saratoga, Quebec and was at Valley Forge with Washington. He also served as the Secretary of War for both terms under President Thomas Jefferson. General Dearborn’s journals during the American Revolution are considered as some of the most detailed accounts of the American Revolution for Independence.
My Personal Beliefs
I hold the deep seated belief that we are all spiritual and artistic. We are all born with a unique gift and a manifest destiny to fulfill. When we exchange this gift with others and fulfill our purpose in life, we become free and strong. Living with purpose is art in itself with great rewards.
One’s art need not be music, painting or even something that has been traditionally classified and regarded by stuffy critics as “Art.” For some it may be tutoring children, offering comforting words in private places or by simply helping others to live a more productive and prosperous life. There are many small corners in this world and and one of them has a place for every individual’s gift and purpose. It is my personal belief that some of the greatest artists in history were Aristotle, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Ronald Reagan and L. Ron Hubbard.
