     Sally's occupation: Captain in the Confederate States Army.. When the Civil War broke out, the Confederate government called on private citizens to help care for the sick and wounded, for there was no Red Cross service in those days. Miss [Sally Louisa] Tompkins responded at once, although a boarder at the Arlington, with only her servants to aid her. Judge John Robinson, who was removed to the country, offered her his house on Third and Main Streets [in Richmond, Virginia], and here she conducted the famous Robinson Hospital, at her own expense, with her own servants, for ten days after the battle of Manassas till June 13th, 1865. (Her sister, Maria Tompkins, died early in the war.) The wealth and beauty and fashion of Richmond gathered daily at this hospital, for the Southern women of the sixties were as heroic nurses as the English and French women of today, in their Red Cross service. There, while the beauties of Richmond gave themselves the solemn task of nursing the wounded and dying, Miss Tompkins, "the little lady with milk white hands," as the sick men called her, flitted from duty to duty, her medicine chest strapped to her side and her Bible in her hands ever ready for constant use and comfort of her patients.

Miss Tompkins returned over 1300 men to the field, ready again to do or die, "pro aris et focis;" and her hospital was crowded to the limit by the wounded, who would beg "Take me to Miss Tompkins' hospital if possible." Under these conditions, her fiat went forth, "My hospital can NEVER be too full to hold a Mathews or a Gloucester soldier." When an order was issued closing all private hospitals, she was commissioned captain of cavalry by request of President Davis, and allowed to conduct her hospital to the close of the war. Once after the war, when requested to visit the Johns Hopkins hospital, she was treated with great distinction and requested by the authorities to examine their record of typhoid patients. When asked she replied, "My percentage of deaths from typhoid was less than yours." She was then asked what medicines she used. she replied, "We had NOTHING but whiskey and turpentine." It might have been added, her grand nursing, exquisite cleanliness, and her faithful colored cook.

It must not be omitted that after the war was over she had scores on scores of offers of marriage from men of all ranks in the army, more offers it is said than any other woman in the state of her day, too many to be answered even, but she would smile gently and say, "Poor fellows, they are not well yet of their fevers." She had not the remarkable beauty of the Virginia women of her day, but it was often said that she had "a splendid face" and an appearance of great neatness and refinement, and of wholesome strength of mind and character, supplied the place of some of the more frivolous charms. Her height was not over five feet, but the dignity and force of her presence were not lessened by the lack of inches.

The war being over, Miss Tompkins gave herself with great devotion to church work and attendance. She used to say no one could tell what spiritual blessing might be lost in missing a single service, and her liberality of purse and of personal service were equally devout. Never did she miss a convention of the Episcopal church if possible to attend, and her great hospitality and gift for organization found vent in taking some large house at each convention and inviting all her friends, young and old, to be her guests on these delightful occasions. She was thus constantly surrounded by the elite of her own and other communities, and her humbler friends were never forgotten. In her latter years, her large means were depleted by financial disaster, and when the Confederate Woman's Home was established on Grace street, Richmond, in the old Warwick mansion, she was invited to grace the establishment as an honored guest. The remnant of her fortune sustained her there, and she was the recipient of gifts, honors and attentions from many distinguished persona; especially during Confederate Reunions at Richmond, when the little lady would sit, enthroned as it were, in her chair, and hold daily receptions of men and women of the most historic war record and social prominence. Whenever she entered a convention hall of the Daughters of the Confederacy, the whole body rose to receive her.

The Sally Tompkins Chapter of Gloucester was formed among the early chapters of the U. D. C., and some years later the CAPTAIN Sally Tompkins Chapter of Mathews was formed in her honor. Her family connection is large in both counties. The Deanes, Yeatmans, Dabneys, Tabbs, Taylors, Fahses, Taliaferros, Patterson-Smith, Lanes, Roys and Washingtons were her relatives in these counties besides a host of friends.

She was sometimes referred to as the Florence Nightingale of the South. Sally was born at 'Poplar Grove', Mathews County, Virginia, on 9 November 1833. Her body was interred in July 1916 at Mathews County, Virginia, at Christ Church.1 Sally died on 25 July 1916 at Confederate Woman's Home, Richmond, Henrico County, Virginia, at age 82.
