 Clara Barton

50. Clara Barton

    Some of the early battles of the Civil War were fought near the city of Washington, D.C. A woman named Clara Barton worked in a government office in Washington. When she saw the dead and wounded soldiers, she wanted to help. So she decided to become a nurse. She wanted to go to the battlefields and care for the soldiers.

    It was not easy for Clara Barton to become a nurse. Nursing, especially on the battlefields, was considered work for men. Many army doctors did not want to work with women. But Clara Barton didn't listen.

    During the five years of the war, Barton helped thousands of men. After one battle, for example, Barton and some of the other nurses spread hay on a hill and helped carry wounded soldiers over to the hay, They carried more than 3,000 men. They then worked through the night, and made bandages for the men who were bleeding.

    Besides caring for the soldiers on the battlefields, Barton also traveled around the country getting medicines and supplies. She spoke to important people in the government, and got them to improve conditions in the hospitals.

    When the war was over, Clara Barton went to Europe to rest. There she learned about the International Red Cross. The Red Cross helped wounded soldiers and also helped victims of disasters like storms and earthquakes. Barton returned to the United States and convinced the government to join the Red Cross. In 1881 Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross.
