Samuel L. Clemens, the future Mark Twain, was born when Halley’s Comet
was in the skies. He died during the comet’s return 74 years later. In
between, Clemens traveled the world and had many experiences as he
passed from typesetter to river pilot, prospector, newspaper reporter,
lecturer, author, publisher, businessman and family man. On this page
you will find general information on Mark Twain, including a timeline of
his life, genealogy, and publishing career. Here is a brief chronology
of the life of Samuel Clemens, Mark Twain.
Nothing says “Missouri literature” like Mark Twain. And nothing says
“Mark Twain was here” like the state historic site that bears his name.
Mark Twain Birthplace State Historic Site has the two-room rented cabin Samuel Clemens – Twain’s real name – was born in, first editions of many of the author’s works, a handwritten manuscript of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
and many of the furnishings from Twain’s Connecticut home. The site
also has a public reading room for personal study and research.
