Lulu Mattox served as Jake Featherston's secretary for many years both prior to his election as President and after his election. She served as a formidable obstacle to people who tried to get in to see Featherston. She was the only person Featherston had any respect for, and the only person Featherston allowed to order him around. Indeed, Lulu's devotion was such that she helped stop Nathan Bedford Forrest III's attempted coup against Featherston. As Jake told Clarence Potter in 1944, trying to explain his affection for the woman, "I like Lulu. Rest of the world's full of assholes."
Lulu joined Featherston's entourage as it tried to reach the redoubt deep in the Confederate States. When the Alligator they were fleeing in crashed in Georgia, Lulu was badly hurt. Rather than be taken captive by U.S. troops, Lulu asked Featherston to shoot her. She admitted that her feelings for him were more than platonic, and also acknowledged that those feelings would never be returned. Featherston carried out her wishes.
