About the book: Barton’s 1904 book “A Story of the Red Cross: Glimpses of Field Work,” recounts the work performed by the Society under her direction.
About the Author: Clara Barton (1821 – 1912) was a pioneering nurse who founded the American Red Cross. She was a hospital nurse in the American Civil War, a teacher, and patent clerk. Nursing education was not very formalized at that time and Clara did not attend nursing school, so she provided self-taught nursing care.
