The Circus in America


You may not want to run away and join the circus, but you'll probably enjoy this goldmine of circus information dating from pre-1793 to 1940. Find content on the animals, people, acts (acrobatic, clowns, juggling, etc), music and lore of this popular amusement in America's history. You can listen to the sounds, click on various circus wagons for information, and view colorful posters as well.
