Way back in 1883, the opening of what some called the eighth wonder of the world was greeted with fireworks and much fanfare.  It had taken fourteen years to build the Brooklyn Bridge.  But many were not sure that it was safe.  There had been other bridges that had fallen.  Could this bridge possibly hold the traffic that would be using it?  One man decided to test the bridge.  And he did it in a spectacular way.  The man was P.T. Barnum who has been called the greatest showman on earth.  Come along and join in the fun.
