Indie work: comparing America's famous Barnum & Bailey Circus with Canada's colorful Cirque de Soleil

The First Siamese Twins
Originally uploaded by sydneyw19
Chang and Eng were the first Siamese twins. Discovered in Siam (Thailand) in the mid 1800's, they were hired in the US by PT Barnum to be in the freak show part of his circus. Their story is bizarre and touching.

Compare the traditional US circus with the modern lollapalooza called Cirque de Soleil. Base the essay on your research. Follow the essay guidelines.
