famous women of the civil war

Hello, I am Clara Barton and I was the leader the Red Cross for 22 years. I was born in New Oxford, Massachusetts .I started of my career as a teacher and being the founder of two schools. After teaching i got into writing and languages and moved to Clinton, New York. AS the civil war went on I had the urge to help so I became known as "angel on the battlefield”. I would get supplies for injured soldiers. In the begging of this career men didn’t like the idea of women helping on the battlefield but we proved them wrong. I got the idea of bringing the Red Cross from Europe to America when I visited Geneva and then signed the treaty and became the leader or the American Red Cross. I retired from the president of the red cross when I was 83 and spent the remaining part of my life in Maryland until I passed away with cold complications.
