Description

This is the story of Mark Twain's brief career as a Confederate soldier at the beginning of the American Civil War. Mark Twain’s "private history" is told from the viewpoint of "someone who set out to do something in the war, but didn't.” What starts out as a kind of class reunion/camping trip quickly becomes a series of frightful near misses with a determined and deadly foe, and ends in painful, premature death for some and a lifetime of guilty regrets for others. Mark Twain invites us to witness real war first hand, in a time when men still looked one another in the eye in the final moment of battle. This Mark Twain In Person Library recording is an approximation of Mark Twain's own voice, just as his family might have heard the story for the first time in the family library.

About the author

Mark Twain, who was born Samuel L. Clemens in Missouri in 1835, wrote some of the most enduring works of literature in the English language, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc was his last completed book—and, by his own estimate, his best. Its acquisition by Harper & Brothers allowed Twain to stave off bankruptcy. He died in 1910.
