The Daughters of Charity operated independently for the most part. They had hospitals in Louisiana, Portsmouth, Richmond and served in battlefield hospitals where needed and requested. Once the sisters were not able to move back and forth between the Union and Confederacy, Sis. Euphemia Blenkinsop was given the charge of coordinating the Southern Daughters of Charity. Her title was Visitatrix. Sisters who had charge over a hospital were usually called the hospital Superior.
