Mark Twain in the American West

In Celebration of Samuel Clemens' Birthday, we will explore the forces which caused him to make the trip to the newly established Territory of Nevada with his brother Orion, in 1861. Twain began advocating for social justice while confronted with cruelty to the Chinese in San Francisco. This will become an underlying theme to much of his work, culminating in his high profile as the most famous member of the American Anti-Imperialist League in the 1890's and early 1900's.
