Clarissa “Clara” Barton was a shy girl who grew up to become a teacher, nurse, and humanitarian. At a time when few women worked outside the home, she became the first woman to hold a government job, as a patent clerk in Washington, DC. In 1864, she was appointed “lady in charge” of the hospitals at the front lines of the Union Army, where she became known as the “Angel of the Battlefield.” Clara Barton built a career helping others. She went on to found the American Red Cross, one of her greatest accomplishments, and one of the most recognized organizations in the world.

This book is a concise, interpretive account of the life of Clara Barton from her childhood in Massachusetts through her feats of heroism during the Civil War, her founding of the American Red Cross, which she led for 20 years, and her bitterly contested ejection from office which clouded her last decade. Clara Barton (1821-1912) led a life in the service of humanity. Undoubtedly heroic and undoubtedly generous in her impulse to aid others, she nonetheless remained a self-centered individual who could brook neither criticism nor ingratitude. Her life story is told here with sympathy and understanding without sacrificing candor or honesty.

Known as the "Angel of the Battlefield" for her efforts during the American Civil War, Clara Barton is remembered today as a pioneering nurse and humanitarian. By the end of the 19th century, she was one of the most highly regarded American women on the planet, having brought relief to those suffering in wars and disasters the world over. Frightened as a child, insecure as an adult, and perpetually worried about her image, Barton was a thoroughly modern hero beset by difficulties, including those of her own making.
