Discussing Mark Twain, the Gilded Age in Trenton, and more. Free.

150 years ago, on February 23, 1869, a young Samuel Clemens, better known by his pen name “Mark Twain,” came to Trenton. He drew a crowd to the Taylor Opera House on South Broad Street where he gave a speech on the topic of his then-recent trip to Europe and the Holy Land. At age 34, Mark Twain was just beginning to make a name for himself at the start of his great literary career.
