Theatricals and Spectacles - Canada's Parties

The first circus to Prince Edward Island in 20 years coincided with the arrival of the Fathers of Confederation in Charlottetown on this day, September 1st, 1864.

"The most beautiful Equestrians,
The most accomplished Riders,
The most daring Acrobats,
The finest stud of Horses,
The most learned Dogs and
the most comical Monkeys"

     I wonder what they would have said about the delegates?

To total indifference - see the story on my posting on Christopher Moore's History Blog
