I am looking for more information (articles) on this subject. It is
not easy to find on my own by going to libraries and searching the

Hi alendr1, 

 Tell the truth or trump -- but get the trick. 
-- Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar

The book Pudd?nhead Wilson can be found on the web at Virgina
University?s library website. They have quite a collection of
historical books, which are scanned in first edition copies, so you
can see how the book was printed, as well as read the pages.
an easier to read version is here

A good paper about the book, and probably the research you are looking
for, is on these pages

Mark Twain?s Mississippi River: Politics
That page is part of a large Twain area on the Illinois Historical
Digitaization Projects of Northern Illinois University. There are
several papers there under Themes and Cultural tourism which will give
you social insight into the times and reasons for the ideas presented
in the book.

Future reference:

Whenever I?m searching for information about books or published ideas
I always use the ?site? switch for the search so I can limit the
search results to College or School websites. For example, most of the
time you would search Google for

Pudd?nhead Wilson

and get all kinds of stuff, most of it trying to sell you something.
However, if you instead use the site switch like this

Pudd?nhead Wilson

(notice that there is a colon and then a period there) this tells
Google that you only want results that are located on .EDU or
Educational websites. Here?s the link for that search so you can see
it in action.

Good luck with your research and have a wonderful holiday
