Meet Mark Twain in this only known video recording

From the video vault of history, here is the only known video recording of great American author Mark Twain aka Samuel Clemens hanging out with his daughters Clara and Jean. It was taken in 1909 at Twain’s estate in Stormfield, Connecticut with another famous American Thomas Edison directing behind the lens. Admittedly nothing too tremendously exciting happens, especially by the standards of today’s Internet which seems to live and breathe on videos of Golden Retriever puppies, standing cat, and random people on the streets of Japan singing Weezer. Sorry Mr. Twain, it’s a tough crowd out there.
