Performing Circus Elephants
4 Design Set
The circus came to the United States on April 3, 1793 when John Bill Rickets, an English equestrian rider, used a ring and added acrobats, a rope walker and a clown to his equestrian act. But the circus didn't have an elephant.
The elephant didn't get into the circus until the 1800s. Hackaliah Bailey, a farmer from Somers, New York, had a brother who was a sea captain. The brother, while in London, bought a female African elephant at auction for $20 and sold it to Bailey for $1,000, thereby reaping a tidy little $980.00
