Background[edit | edit source]

Obtained through his wife's inheritance, Sally was an enslaved woman of mixed race. Jefferson allegedly had an intimate relationship with Sally (it may have been Randolph Jefferson), fathering six children with her. She is mentioned in passing by Button Gwinnett, if the Lone Wanderer chooses to convince him that they are Thomas Jefferson.[1]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Sally Hemings is mentioned only in Fallout 3.


  1. The Lone Wanderer: "Stand down, and honorably relinquish your post. You've earned a rest."
    Button Gwinnett (robot): "Coming from you, that means all the world to me. It's been an honor and a privilege to serve my country. It's time for me to take a long-needed rest. I think you'll find that the rest of my men are long-due for the same. I hereby relinquish command and control of this fortification to you. Good luck to you, Mr. Jefferson... and give Sally my regards."
