Mark Twain's The War Prayer

Mark Twain's The War Prayer

WARNING: For those that might be stressed or bothered by unexpected loud noises or sounds of gunfire, near the middle of the episode there are unannounced sounds of artillery.

As an afterword to the previous episodes investigating the life of Louis Jordan, University of Texas football, and the First World War and Texas, this episode presents Mark Twain's "radical" story 'The War Prayer' that remained unpublished during his lifetime. Also presented are several World War I resources.

The songs at the end are by 5thFloorHomicide: Rose Colored Glasses and No Safety. Produced by 301 Productions.

The Texas History Lessons Theme song, Walking Through History, was written and recorded by Derrick McClendon. Listen to his new album, Interstate Daydreamer! Available everywhere you find good music. Thank you Derrick! Twitter: @dmclendonmusic
