Today we’re taking a visit to the cemetery… to remember a part of American history, whose grave is still warm to the touch. As a child I attended a show myself alongside my sisters, but our kids will only hear tales and myths of the animals, the ringleaders, the tents… You may mourn their passing, or you may disagree with the ethics of the entire idea and be glad this chapter has come to a close... This sibling set founded the longest reigning circus dynasty America ever will ever see. They are… The Ringling Brothers.
This is the true story of Al Ringling (originally Rüngling) and his brothers: Gus, Otto, Alf T., Charles, John, Henry, and their sister, Ida. We read their biography... here is everything you need to know, complete with all the juicy details.
