Clara Barton

The Angels of the Battlefield

Introduction

Clara Barton was a selfless battlefield nurse in the Civil War along with other women volunteering to help the wounded soldiers in the military hospital. She created the American Red Cross and changed history in American military by categorizing injuries. The categories are: priority, they are a "priority" and need to be tended to immediately, inspect, check them out and make sure they're okay, and routine which is just a regular scratch or a minor injury.
