Carl Sandburg (1878-1967) was an American poet, author, and historian who was born in Galesburg Illinois. He served in the Spanish-American War before attending Lombard College without graduating. After leaving Lombard College, he moved to Milwaukee Wisconsin where he served as secretary to the Mayor. It was in Wisconsin that Sandburg met and married his wife Lilian with whom he had three children. Following this time in Wisconsin, Carl Sandburg moved first to Michigan and then to Chicago Illinois where he worked at the Chicago Daily News. It was in Chicago that wrote his famous collection titled Chicago Poems in 1915. It was these poems that first earned him credit as a poet. While living in Chicago he continued to write numerous poems and numerous other works. Following this period he returned to Michigan, and finally moved to North Carolina where he remained for the rest of his life.

Carl Sandburg is famous for both his poetry and his remarkable biography of President Abraham Lincoln. This six volume biography was written in two stages with the first being Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years (in 2 volumes), and the second being Abraham Lincoln: The War Years (in 4 volumes).
