During the Civil War, despite being told the battlefield “was no place for a lady,” she journeyed to the front lines bringing medical supplies, food and clothing to the soldiers. She applied dressings, fed the wounded, took and delivered dying messages to loved ones. After the Civil War she tracked down soldiers and verified their final resting places.
Not a woman of idleness she:
• Founded the American Red Cross • Was appointed the first female diplomat
• Worked in the fields of education, foreign aid and black rights.
• Pursued “against the fearful odds” a career in a male dominated world
• She told the world “you have never known me without work and you never will.”
Hear her story and know the dreams of this remarkable woman.
