Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston January 19, 1809. Poe?s mother died when he was 2, and separated from her husband taking Edgar and his 2 other siblings with her. Edgar was then adopted by Mr. and Mrs. John Allan and separated from his siblings. When Poe was 6 years old, he went to school in England for 5 years. He learned Latin and French, as well as math and history. Edgar returned to school in America and went to the University of Virginia in 1826. Poe started to drink heavily and became in debt so had to quit school less than a year later. In 1827, Edgar Allan joined the U.S Army when he was 18 years old. Poe went to New York in 1831 to submit some of his stories but were all rejected.
