History Talk: Mark Twain and the American Presidents

May 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Event Navigation

Mark Twain’s frank observations about the American culture in the Gilded Age often ring true today. Corruption, national identity, the power of big business, and America’s global role were just as contested then as they are now. Mallory Howard and Jason Scappaticci from the Mark Twain House in Hartford share how his funny, insightful observations about the presidents of his day apply readily to the modern presidency.
