The World's Columbian Exposition is an infinitely rich and fascinating cultural event. It is also overwhelmingly large and incredibly layered, and both the history of the Fair and its physical layout must be given appropriate attention to do justice to the whole. The history of the Fair serves as an excellent guidebook for the virtual tour, while the tour contextualizes the history. The history and the tour are both compelling in and of themselves, but also serve as the basis for our later explorations of reactions to the Fair and its legacy.
