Vereshchagin was born on October 14, 1842, in Cherepovets, Russia into the relatively prosperous family of a landowner.

As the son of a landowner and nobleman, Vereshchagin was expected to follow a military or diplomatic career. At the age of eight, his parents enrolled him in the Alexander Cadet School, an educational institution in St. Petersburg that prepared future military officers from a very early age. Graduating from here, he entered the Naval Academy from which he graduated with honors in 1860. Vereshchagin was one of the ablest students in his class and looked to be at the outset of a promising Naval career.
