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.

Performer: Leslie Goddard will be presenting this living history performance.
