ABOUT THE BOOK

Clara Barton is perhaps best known as the founder of the Red Cross. This organization helps those in need, particularly after a natural disaster or those in an emergency situation. Though Barton started her career as a teacher, she found nursing particularly interesting. She nursed her older brother David after he suffered a work-related injury, and also helped other family members with their medical problems. Her father served in the Revolutionary War, and when the Civil War started, Barton found her chance to shine.

A train of wounded soldiers arrived in Washington D.C on April 21, 1861. The U.S. Senate chamber was the only spot in town suitable to hold the dead and dying men. Volunteers came from neighboring areas to take care of the men, including Barton. Seeing the suffering that the men faced, Barton vowed to help in any way possible. By the end of July that same year, Barton found her way to help. She decided to create an organization that would take supplies to soldiers injured in the line of duty.
