This is a photograph of Clara Barton. She was a brave nurse who was famous for working so close to the battles that once a bullet went through her dress sleeve and killed the man that she was tending to. Clara Barton was also quite an example and inspiration to many women who joined as nurses in the war. She was often referenced to during the suffrage movement as a figurehead of how women had to sacrifice and fight with the nation toward the perfect union.
This is an old newspaper advertisement for women to join the Red Cross to help support the troops. During the Civil War, the Red Cross really started going and became a huge part of our nations history from then on.
