For two years Thoreau lived at Walden pond for he wished to learn to live deliberately and wanted to learn what life had to teach him.
In this time, he wrote his essay "Civil Disobedience".
In it, he says that individuals should not allow governments to overrule their consciences thus allowing governments to make them agents of injustice.
Thoreau also advocated transcendentalist ideas of reconnecting with nature, civil disobedience and the importance of individuality
These thoughts acted as the platforms for future civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi
In the course of Thoreau's life, his writings on natural history and philosophy, books, articles, essays, journals, and poetry amount to more than 20 volumes
