Billy Graham's 1957 New York City Crusade

For 100 days, beginning May 15, 1957, Billy Graham held nightly revival meetings at Madison Square Garden.

About 1,500 local Protestant churches co-operated to make Graham's crusade a success. Over 15 million people attended over the course of the 100 days, and many of them attended more than one session. Those who could not make the trip to New York City could watch the meetings via weekly television programs. The 100 days ended with a massive revival in Times Square.
