On this day, February 10th in 1863, Charles Sherwood Stratton, better known by his stage name "General Tom Thumb" (height 2 ft. 11 in.), married Lavinia Warren (height 2 ft. 8 in.) in New York City (pictured above). The couple met and gained great fame while employed as performers under circus pioneer P.T. Barnum. Their wedding was one of the biggest events in nineteenth century New York, greeting some 10,000 guests while standing atop a grand piano. Following the wedding, the couple was received by President Lincoln at the White House. Stratton became a wealthy man, even bailing out Barnum at one point and later the two became business partners.
