About Thomas Benton Luce

Some sources give his date of birth as 27 August 1846. Perhaps there were two sons of this name. He was probably named for Missouri Senator Thomas Hart Benton (1782-1858), a popular Jacksonian Democrat who opposed slavery, and supported western expansion, free land for settlers, and a federal currency supported by gold. The name underscores Ephraim Luce's enthusiasm for President Jackson.
