Clara Barton

"Face Danger, But Never Fear It"

Series: Americans—The Spirit of a Nation

By Don Nardo

During the bloodiest battle on American soil at Antietam Creek, Clara Barton worked tirelessly in the midst of chaos bandaging wounds and giving soldiers water. Although soldiers found it unusual to have a woman on the frontlines, they appreciated her hard work and kindness. Barton saved many lives during the Civil War, but her heroics went far beyond the battlefield. Follow Don Nardo as he explores the life of Clara Barton, from her days as a ground-breaking teacher to her creation of the American Red Cross.
