In A Big Way

By Jody Williams
1     What is your favorite zoo animal? Some people think monkeys are funny. Some people like bears. Some like watching dolphins do tricks. Others like giraffes because they have long necks. Most people like to watch the biggest animal. They like the elephants.
 
2     On April 13, 1796, the first elephant came to the United States. Jacob Crowninshield went to India. India is a country in Asia. Jacob brought back an elephant. It was two years old. It was almost seven feet tall. Jacob's whole trip, plus the elephant, cost him $450.00.
 
3     Jacob stood his elephant on a street corner. People were amazed. Two weeks later, a man wanted to buy the elephant. He gave Jacob ten thousand dollars. The man charged people to see the elephant. People paid 25 to 50 cents. The elephant never had a name. It was always called "the elephant" or "he." It was found out later that the elephant was a "she."
