Facts and Events
Sarah's father was future president of the United States Zachary Taylor; her husband was second-in-command, and future president of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis. She met Davis when her father was commanding Fort Crawford in Wisconsin and he was second in command. Her father opposed the match because he was in the military, so Davis resigned before they were married. Both the newlyweds contracted malaria, and Sarah died three months later at the home of his sister.
