Join us as we commemorate the life and work of Clara Barton, heroine of the Civil War and founder of the American Red Cross, in recognition of her 200th birthday in December 2021. Clara Barton broke through the barriers that so often confined women of the nineteenth century to the domestic sphere and had a long career of public service that touched people all over the world. She was an advocate for the expansion of rights for African Americans and women, a pioneer of public education, and the inventor of the first aid kit. She was also one of the first women to work for the federal government. This illustrated talk by a park ranger at Clara Barton National Historic Site in Glen Echo, Maryland will use photographs from Clara Barton’s life and times to describe her service and the struggles she overcame along the way.
