Notes
This engraving, taken from a photograph, depicts the wedding party of celebrated midgets Mr. and Mrs. General Tom Thumb, with Commodore Nutt as best man and Minnie Warren Bump (Lavinia's sister) as maid of honor. P.T. Barnum, who helped arrange the wedding, stands behind the midgets, who were all sideshow performers at Barnum's American Museum. This elegant wedding, known as "The Fairy Wedding,” took place on February 10, 1863 and was attended by New York high society, with a huge crowd gathered outside the church. The back of this cabinet card (see #1003773) bears a lengthy description of the reception dress Mrs. Thumb is wearing. These cabinet cards were sold at Barnum's American Museum.

Name
Barnum, P. T.
Notes
Showman Phineas Talyor Barnum first took a version of his American Museum on the road as "P. T. Barnum's Grand Traveling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan and Circus," in 1870, known as "The Greatest Show on Earth" by 1872. Barnum's show included sideshow attractions (curiosities, freaks and oddities), circus acts (animal training, acrobatics, and other feats of skill and daring), a menagerie, and art exhibits. In fact, Barnum virtually invented the sideshow, drawing performers and human oddities from all over the world to appear in his productions, and he was also responsible for bringing many types of exotic animals to the United States for the first time. Since that time, Barnum's circus has bought, merged with, and been bought by a great number of other circuses, a selection of which are listed in the Alternate Names area of this Performing Art Group entry. As of 2005, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus is possibly the largest and longest-running circus organization in the world. SFPALM

Name
Thumb, General Tom
Notes
Discovered by P. T. Barnum at age 4, and stage-named after a fairy tale hero, this midget was a natural performer and comedian. Thumb quickly learned how to dance, sing, and act, and enjoyed delighting a crowd with his antics. He was highly successful and became very wealthy. In 1863, he married Lavinia Warren Bump, another of Barnum's midget performers. SFPALM
