    Who Was P.T. Barnum?

    - The mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut
    - One of the founders of the Barnum & Bailey Circus
    - An American showman who promoted the Greatest Show on Earth
    - All of the above!

    Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages, step right up for Who HQ’s entertaining biography of P. T. Barnum: politician, businessman, and The Greatest Showman on Earth!

    After moving from Connecticut to New York City in 1834, twenty-four-year-old Phineas Taylor Barnum launched his now-legendary career as a showman. Even though spectators debated whether his exhibitions were authentic wonders, hoaxes, or a little bit of both, they were always astounded by what they saw. And readers are sure to be amazed by the story of how Barnum went from owning a museum filled with rare and unusual items to transforming the American circus into a popular and thrilling phenomenon.
