This week I’ve been trying to find some virtual tours of home libraries from the 19th Century. While Mark Twain’s connection to the Civil War is loose (he headed for Nevada Territory in 1861), his post-war friendship with Ulysses S. Grant and other “ties to the war” have been featured through the years on this blog. (Links here!)
And guess what… There’s the opportunity to take a virtual tour of Mark Twain’s home in Hartford, Connecticut, and get a close look at his library and writing space. Maybe you’ll find some inspiration for your own home library through the tour of the 19th Century home.
Personally, I’m thinking a pool table in my writing room would be an awesome distraction…
