The "Greatest Show on Earth" was a gigantic success, owned by American showman P.T. Barnum, who died this day, April 7, 1891. His biggest draw, selling 20 million tickets, was General Tom Thumb, a man only 25 inches tall. They were received by President Lincoln and even gave a command performance before Queen Victoria. The circus not being open Sundays, Barnum let his "Great Roman Hippodrome" in New York be used by D.L. Moody for major evangelistic campaigns. P.T. Barnum stated: "Most persons, on the whole, are humbugged by believing too little, than by believing too much."
