Mark Twain and the American Presidents

Description: Mark Twain's frank observations about 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. Twain's funny, insightful observations about the presidents of his day apply readily to the modern presidency. Presented by Jason Scappaticci of Manchester Community College and Mallory Howard, Assistant Curator of the Mark Twain House and Museum. https://www.marktwainhouse.org
