Quote for the week

Clara Barton


1. She offered her Medical services to both Union soldiers and Confederate prisoners alike…

2. She founded the American Red Cross in 1880.

 She modeled the organization after its international counterpart, and served as its first president from 1881 to 1904. She led the organization in aiding victims of natural disasters in America and abroad…

3. She was given many affectionate nicknames for her service.

These included “The American Nightingale,” in reference to Florence Nightingale of Crimean War fame, and “Angel of the Battlefield.” 

“Everybody’s business is nobody’s business, and nobody’s business is my business.”
