Benjamin Button was born to an upper middleclass family in Baltimore, Maryland, in the 1800's. He had an odd condition - he is born old, and as the years go by, he gets younger. Benjamin loved cuban cigars from birth. He tried to attend Yale, like his father had, but they drove him away on account of how old he appeared to be. He went to Harvard instead. He married Hildegarde Moncrief. Benjamin served in the army and won a medal. In his later years (as a young man), he was a star sportsman. He had a son.
