Clarissa “Clara” Barton was a shy girl who grew up to become a teacher, nurse, and humanitarian.  At a time when few women worked outside the home, she became the first woman to hold a government job, as a patent clerk in Washington, DC. In 1864, she was appointed “lady in charge” of the hospitals at the front lines of the Union Army, where she became known as the “Angel of the Battlefield.” Clara Barton built a career helping others.  She went on to found the American Red Cross, one of her greatest accomplishments, and one of the most recognized organizations in the world.

I like this book because it gave me great information ,plus I din't know who she was before I read this book

Who was Clara Barton is a great book. It was a story of her life from the day she was born to the day she died. It told a lot about how she helped so many people. It told who her parents and siblings were and where she moved to. It also told all of the jobs she had and gave you a look at what people’s life was like back then. Of course, it had some gross spots in it because she was a nurse in the civil war. It also told how Doctor’s did stuff back then.

The Who Was books are a great series. I like reading them to get some new information about people I don't know. The Clara Barton book was great for me I enjoy learning about the Civil War. I also got this book at Gettysburg. AWESOME place to go if you love Civil War stuff!!
