Civil War Nurse Clara Barton

August 15 @ 6:30 pm

| Free

Clara Barton earned fame as the first woman to serve as a nurse on the front lines of a battlefield. This living-history program brings to life the story of Barton’s wartime work, including her decision to provide care for soldiers and her experiences working at battlefield hospitals. Her stories – funny, poignant, and sometimes heartbreaking – reveal the medical conditions of Civil War soldiers and the courage required for a woman to defy conventions during a national crisis. No registration required.
