FC: The Life Of Mark Twain

2: Four years after Samuel was born, his family moved from Florida, Missouri to Hannibal Missouri. Hannibal was a town along the coast of the Mississippi River so Samuel grew up with a love for the water. The expirences that he had as a child along the river led him to want to become a steamboat driver.

4: Samuel Clemens died on April 21st 1910. Samuel was such a great writer because he added rich language, setting, and great characters into his writing that changed the face of American Literature.
