Abstract
Chicago’s World’s Fair of 1893 was an incredibly popular and immensely influential social and cultural event. Millions of Americans experienced the Fair during it six months of existence on the shores of Lake Michigan, and millions more have lived with its legacy throughout the twentieth century. This hypertextual thesis explores the Exposition through a virtual tour, investigates visitors’ reactions to the Fair, and analyzes the social, political, and cultural legacies of the World’s Columbian Exposition.
