Clara Barton

Hello,

 

I enjoy reading historical facts about those who have lived before me. Today’s focus will be on Clara Barton and her tireless work helping solders. She was also a teacher. Enjoy.

 

The founder of the American Red Cross, Clara Barton’s war relief efforts began during the Civil War in Washington, DC in 1861, when she assisted soldiers who had lost belongings and supplies during battle. Horrified by reports of severe supply shortages, she advertised in a newspaper for provisions and organized the distribution of collected public donations to soldiers in the battlefields. Barton’s lasting commitment to aiding soldiers earned her the nickname “The Angel of the Battlefield.” Click here to read more.
