Manson was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on November 11, His mother, Kathleen Maddox, was a teenage prostitute. In order to give her bastard son a name, Ms. Maddox married William Manson. He soon abandoned the both of them.
She tried to put him into a foster home, but the arrangements fell through. As a last resort she sent Charles to school in Terre Haute, Indiana. At only fourteen, Manson left his mother and rented a room for himself.
He supported himself with odd jobs and petty theft. He was arrested in Peoria, Illinois for robbing a grocery store and was then sent to the Indiana Boys School in Plainfield, Indiana, where he ran away another eighteen times before he was caught and sent to the National Training School for Boys in Washington D.
He spent his childhood being sent from one place to another, and trouble always seemed to follow him.

Everytime he came into a room, he cased it, like an animal. Where were the windows? What was the quickest way out? He never sat with his back to the door. At this time, hippies were gentle people, believing in peace, love, and sharing with others.
This was a perfect environment for Manson to gain followers. He started to collect a retinue of impressionable girls searching for a community of love.
