"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." -Mark Twain

Looks as if "the Devil's Dictionary" and all of his stories and poetry are free on Kindle Fire. I think I caught in his biography that he fought at Chickamauga. That is a ghostly place.

You should read his short story, "Chicamauga." It is his most famous piece.

Will do. Mark Twain's war prayer will be hard to beat.

Reading Devil's Dictionary right now, but so far prefer the Urban Dictionary.
