-- This US traveling circus, known as Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Combined Shows, was started in 1919 when the Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth, a circus created by P. T. Barnum and James Anthony Bailey merged with the Ringling Bros. World's Greatest Shows.

-- Examines the origins of the famous circuses, the background of the important individuals involved, and their merger into the most famous circus of all. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about The Greatest Show on Earth like never before, in no time at all. Americans have loved traveling circuses for generations, and none represent the country’s love for entertainment quite like the most famous of them all, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus. The five brothers who started a circus in Wisconsin, as well as P.T. Barnum, have had their names become synonymous with the circus, so it's only fitting that the manner in which these men entered the business and the merging of their traveling circuses together also make for great stories.

The puckish Barnum recounts his adventures as a teenage exhibitor of human oddities, and his eventual role as the entertainer who brought Tom Thumb (Sandor Raski) and the Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind (Hanna Schygulla), to the American masses.Image: POCO DIVO Red Floor Circus Tent Indoor Children Play House Outdoor Kids Castle

International Town Criers Day
-- In olden times, when few people were literate, and there was little access to printed media, town criers were a central part of urban living. Town criers were responsible for keeping the populace up to date with the latest news and events, and for disseminating news from the ruling classes to the wider populace.
