The purpose of this project is to celebrate Samuel L. Clemens' life in Redding, Connecticut by documenting and showcasing his time here in multiple formats both online and offline. Your donations & site sponsorships will help me dedicate more time to these projects and allow me to get them online sooner.

Looking for an Affiliate Program with high commissions and 2nd tier opportunities? This is the one that I'm using. It's a water filtration company with a 30% commission on systems and 20% commission on parts. Add in 2nd tier and it's worth trying.
