Mrs. Thompson is one of 16 women of color in Culpeper who registered. See them all on our VIRTUAL EXHIBIT.
Each of the counties had Civil War veterans - both Union and Confederate service men - who were first to register to vote. A large percentage of the women registrants were direct relatives of armed forces veterans, including Lydia M. V. Marshall who had four sons who served in the military.
