It is believed that Mark Twain (aka Samuel Clemens) was born the same month as the passing of Halley's comet in November 1835.

Because he wrote Huckleberry Finn!!!!
Tom Sawyer is the protagonist and title character of the Mark Twain novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876). He appears in three other novels by Twain: Adventures of H…uckleberry Finn (1884), Tom Sawyer Abroad (1894), and Tom Sawyer, Detective (1896). Sawyer also appears in at least three unfinished Twain works, Huck and Tom Among the Indians, Schoolhouse Hill, and Tom Sawyer's Conspiracy. While all three uncompleted works were posthumously published, only Tom Sawyer's Conspiracy boasts a complete plot, as Twain abandoned the other two works after finishing only a few chapters. The fictional character's name may have derived from a real-life Tom Sawyer with whom Twain was acquainted in San Francisco, California, while Twain was employed as a reporter at the San Francisco Call.  The character himself is an amalgam of three boys Twain knew while growing up. The name Sawyer is derived from the Mississippi River pilot's term for a "tree in the bed of the river with its branches reaching the surface and moving up and down with the current". Clemens was a river pilot at one time, and many of the adventures of his character, Tom Sawyer, are connected with the Mississippi River, and partly derive from this experience. Most adventures in the book really occurred, with one or two Clements' own. The rest were experiences of boys who were schoolmates. < datas from wikipedia >

It depends on how you look at it. whether your a radical or just plain awesome some people thought his works were racist, but some thought that it would open of the eyes w…ho were actually racist. Yes, i know this is confusing, but it's quite fascinating after you understand the entirety of why Mark Twain, or actually Samuel Clemens, wrote such things.
