The Long Road Home - Fall of Richmond The Robertson Hospital Sketch
The Appomattox County Historical Society, together with the United Daughters of the Confederacy Appomattox Chapter 11, Lee's Lieutenants and the Federal Generals Corps sponsored a Sesquicentennial event entitled The Fall of Richmond. This is the third event in the five-year "Long Road Home" program leading to the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War in Appomattox.
The Long Road Home series of events are a combination of a Civil War re-enactment and living history events. This event, commemorating the events surrounding the 1865 fall and evacuation of Richmond, Virginia was held April 5-7, 2013 at Clover Hill Village, Appomattox, Virginia.
The most ambitious scenario was a depiction of the closing of the Robertson Hospital by Federal forces. The event is taken from a dairy excerpt and features Captain Sally Tompkins, a nurse at the hospital that is short of medicine, supplies, and everything else except wounded Confederate soldiers.
