Missouri was a slave state at the time because of the Missouri Compromise in 1820. Thus, Twain had a Southern experience with slaves. At the age of 12, Twain learned the trade of printing and typesetting (Fredericks). Intrigued by the crafts, he decided to learn more. Orion, Twain’s older brother, owned several newspapers, so Twain took the chance to work for him ("Mark Twain").
