Watch History Come Alive!

This lecture and presentation focuses on a period in Samuel Clemens' life when he took the name, Mark Twain, and came to Michigan. The presentation also covers stories of his early childhood in the 1850's. Al & Dave Eicher of Program Source International obtained a diary of his travels in Michigan which was the beginning of his World Tour. He traveled with his wife and daughter plus his business manager. The diary provides interesting comments about the St. Clair Flats and sites along the way to Mackinac Island and other parts of Michigan. The lecture along with 150 or more photos presents a timeline of events in his family life.

Wednesday, May 16th at 2:00pm in Harmony Hall, Independence Village

Presented by Al & David Eicher of Program Source International
