Mark Twain

Mark Twain dies at 74

21 Apr, 1910

Twain dies from a heart condition at his home in Danbury, CT. Too weak to speak, he writes a note asking for his glasses to read Carlyle’s French Revolution but then pushes them away, falls unconscious and dies a few hours later. His one surviving daughter, Clara and her husband, as well as his biographer, are with him as he dies. He is also survived by a niece and nephew who were on their way to his bedside when he died.
