Clara Barton

Clara Barton did what most women would never have dared or wanted to do - she served as a battlefield nurse during a time of war. Her experience showed her that something had to be done to make medical care during wartime better. In the end she founded the American chapter of the Red Cross and she thus made a huge contribution. For book collections about other great women take a look at the Women's History Month feature and the Biographies section.
