A central purpose of Dwight L. Moody's World's Fair revival campaign was to try and reach every visitor who came to the city with the Christian message. To do this, the revival's organizers tried a number of tactics. These ranged from traditional worship services in churches and theatres throughout the city, to more innovate approaches such as tent meetings and the "gospel wagon" pictured here.
