Parkman was born in Boston, Massachusetts and attended Harvard College, where he studied history and literature. After graduation, he embarked on a career as a writer and historian, publishing his first book, "The Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin," in 1865. Parkman is known for his meticulous research and his ability to bring history to life through vivid descriptions and engaging storytelling. In addition to his histories of the French and Indian War and the American Revolution, he also wrote about the colonial period in America, the Civil War, and the history of the Native Americans. Parkman's work had a significant impact on the field of American history and continues to be studied and admired by scholars and readers today.
