The 40 Horse Hitch - 2003

The Big day has arrived and the 2003 Great Circus Parade is about to get under way on the Milwaukee lakefront. The oldest wagon known to have been pulled by a 40 horse hitch, the Two Hemispheres Bandwagon, now owned by John Zweifel, is about to be pulled by the infamous 40 horse hitch. This would be the very last time.

The Five Graces is the oldest wagon surviving to have been pulled by a 40-horse team. It did so for the parades during the European tour. The Two Hemispheres was not built until 1903, the first year back from Europe.
