6: Helping In The War. | When Clara Barton herd that the soldiers in war were very low on supplies, she franticly started to gather supplies for them. When she reached the campus, she delivered all of the supplies and the doctors called her an angle (Lassieur, 12-15)
7: Thank You Clara Barton. | Clara was a huge help, without her most of the soldiers would have died. Clara stayed calm in some of the toughest situations, when the soldier that she was working on died in her arms, and when the room that she was nursing in was under attack (Lassieur, 16-17). Clara Barton was the angle of the battle field.
8: Founding The Red Cross. | In 1869 Clara traveled to Europe, and when she was there she learned about the Red Cross. When she returned home, she fought to bring the Red Cross to the US (Koestler, 22-23, 28).
9: In 1904, people started to question the way that Clara Barton ran the organization. After much struggling Clara Barton finally regained the organization, and was back on track (Lassieur, 26). Clara Barton had made a great accomplishment, by bringing the Red Cross to the US!
