Eng and Chang Pop Art print


Eng and Chang Bunker (May 11, 1811 - January 17, 1874) were conjoined twin brothers whose condition and birthplace

became the basis for the term "Siamese twins".

In 1829, British merchant Robert Hunter "discovered" them and paid their family to let them be exhibited

as a curiosity during a world tour. Upon termination of their contract with Hunter, the brothers successfully went into business for themselves.

In 1839, while visiting Wilkesboro, North Carolina, the twins were attracted to the area and settled on a 110-acre farm in nearby Traphill,

becoming naturalized United States citizens. Chang and his wife had 10 children; Eng and his wife had 11.

According to the Travel Channel's "Mysteries at the Museum", Chang suffered a stroke the night that he died.

Eng awoke to find his brother dead, and called for his wife and children to attend to him.

A doctor was summoned to perform an emergency separation, but he was too late. Eng died three hours later.
