Clara Barton Humanitarian by Samuel Willard Crompton


Clara Barton Humanitarian by Samuel Willard Crompton

Known as the 'Angel of the Battlefield' for her efforts during the American Civil War, Clara Barton is remembered today as a pioneering nurse and humanitarian. By the end of the 19th century, she was one of the most highly regarded American women on the planet, having brought relief to those suffering in wars and disasters the world over. Frightened as a child, insecure as an adult, and perpetually worried about her image, Barton was a thoroughly modern hero, beset by difficulties, including those of her own making. In Clara Barton: Humanitarian , read about this brave nurse and founder of the American Red Cross.
