Barnum, P. T.
Notes
Showman Phineas Talyor Barnum first took a version of his American Museum on the road as "P. T. Barnum's Grand Traveling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan and Circus," in 1870, known as "The Greatest Show on Earth" by 1872. Barnum's show included sideshow attractions (curiosities, freaks and oddities), circus acts (animal training, acrobatics, and other feats of skill and daring), a menagerie, and art exhibits. In fact, Barnum virtually invented the sideshow, drawing performers and human oddities from all over the world to appear in his productions, and he was also responsible for bringing many types of exotic animals to the United States for the first time. Since that time, Barnum's circus has bought, merged with, and been bought by a great number of other circuses, a selection of which are listed in the Alternate Names area of this Performing Art Group entry. As of 2005, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus is possibly the largest and longest-running circus organization in the world. SFPALM
