The noun _sacrifice_, in the third example, is nom. after the active-intransitive verb _fell_: RULE 22.
Besides the three cases already explained, nouns are sometimes in the nominative case _independent_, sometimes in the nominative case absolute, sometimes in apposition in the same case, and sometimes in the nominative or objective case after the neuter to _be_, or after an active-intransitive or passive verb.
