Being removed from the scene of the conflict, Nottoway's soil suffered little from the invading armies. Due to this fact the Confederate Government established a Convalescent Hospital at Black's and White's in 1862-63. It was in charge of Dr. Thos. R. Blandy, who had been Surgeon of the Nottoway Grays. This hospital was located just back of where the freight station at Blackstone now stands. Blandy was later transferred to Burkeville where a large hospital was located during the latter part of the war.

In the Parish record is entered the death and burial in the St. Luke's Episcopal Churchyard of the following Confederate soldiers who died in the Black's and White's Confederate Hospital:

Private Asa Jennings, Co. H 24th Ga. Regt, Sept. 29, 1862.
W. H. Harding, Co. F, 3d N. C. Regt., Mar. 31, 1863.
Drewry Wall, Co. K. 52d N. C. Regt., May 28, 1863.
R. B. Woodall, Co. H, 24th Tex. Regt., July 31, 1863.
James Holt, Co. D. 6th Tex. Regt.. Aug. 2, 1863.

Old Saint Luke’s Cemetery. (this was Green’s Chapel) was located adjoining the church on north side of Jordan Hungtown road, Black and Whites (Blackstone) almost across from Hamlin's tavern, and also back of Pryer Jones’ house. This once cemetery is very dilapidated (in 1936) only a few graves with markers remain. Most of the bodies have been taken to the Blackstone cemetery. Just recently three graves have been moved and one a child known to have been over one hundred
years old. This was a grave with an iron fence around it in which was a grave with a marker with the following inscription:
