“The room into which we were put to prepare for the ceremony was upstairs and had been heated by the western sun so that dressing was hot business. The Major (Jackson) undertook to put on a new collar, a ‘stand up,’…and he called on me to help him adjust it. By the time I had got it buttoned it was limp.… He produced another somewhat different in shape and …we managed to get him rigged out. … We marched down to the parlour where we he was married by Dr. Lacy.” — Clem Fishburne, a Jackson fiend, describing the July 16, 1857 wedding
