The Union soldiers appreciated her work very much. They began to call her the Angel of the Battlefield.
Clara Barton was a shy girl, so much so that her parents feared she would never become independent enough to take care of herself. How unfounded those fears would turn out to be. Clara grew into a brave young woman, putting her own life in danger time and again to nurse the wounded soldiers of the Civil War.

Her daring did not stop there. As well as a natural nurse, she was a talented organizer, arranging for supplies to be sent to the front; setting up the Missing Soldiers Office; and getting involved in the suffrage movement. But it was a chance meeting with the leader of the International Red Cross which heralded her greatest achievement: setting up the American Red Cross, which still helps thousands of people each year.
If you're after a book filled with courage, spirit, and an indomitable nature, Clara Barton's story is the one for you.
