"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." - Mark Twain
Today we celebrate one of America's most treasured artists: Mr. Samuel Langhorne Clemens (better known by his pen name, Mark Twain). Twain was a writer and humorist best known for his novels: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Twain's unique wit, dialogue, and prose style made him one of the 19th century's most beloved writers. Twain was a staunch supporter of labor unions and civil rights, and harbored a fascination with science and innovation. Twain was friends with scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla, spending time in his lab with him and even patenting a few inventions of his own.
