Description:
 Clara Barton struggled to gain access into a Victorian-era workforce that limited professional opportunities for women. The Civil War set her on a path of public service where she endured some of the same terrible conditions and extreme dangers as the soldiers with whom she worked. After the war she continued in public service. This illustrated talk by a park ranger from Clara Barton National Historic Site will use photos from the Civil War era to explore the dangers Clara Barton faced and the accomplishments she achieved.
