A Blast of the Past #114: Mark Twain

If you grow up in the Southern Tier of New York, especially anywhere near Elmira, you you the importance of Elmira to the life of Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain. Back during Twains Sequicentennial in 1985, in fact, Hannibal, MO had a real imbroglio, while Elmira put on a celebration that far outshone the one further west to become the premier celebration.

Our visit back, of course, was in 2009, but we had to give the kids a look at the Eastern history of Mark Twain.
