Samuel Clemens was born two months premature on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri, and became an adult as our nation was both expanding, and threatening to come apart. As an adult he would become known by his professional name of Mark Twain. One of Twain's most significant achievements was in going against the grain of the conventional New England literary culture, and leading a movement that would revolutionize American literature.
