Frederic Remington was born in 1861 in Canton, New York, the son of a Republican newspaper publisher named Seth Pierre who was a Colonel in the cavalry and a Civil war commander. His mother was named Clara Sackrider. From his father, he inherited an interest in the cavalry and military operations.

He did not, however, inherit his fatherís trim figure, as Remington was 5 foot 9 inches and weighed in at 300 pounds. In his youth, Remington enjoyed hunting and was also an avid horseman. Remington attended the Highland Military Academy in Worcester, Massachusetts through his high school years. Afterwards, he was educated at the Yale College School of Art where he was not the best of students and preferred playing football over art.
