Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) was an American writer and philosopher, most famous for his autobiographical work, Walden (1854), in which he details his two-years spent living in a forest cabin becoming self-sufficient.

One of his most famous philosophical works is Civil Disobedience, which takes root in Thoreau's reaction to the 1846–1848 Mexican War.
